Aberdeen defender Ash Taylor is confident that the Dons have the players who can cause Rangers problems when the teams meet at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Rangers will be going into the game full of confidence, as their recent 1-0 win over rivals Celtic took them 19 points clear at the top of the table. The Dons drew 0-0 with Dundee United in their last game, but they are still unbeaten in their last seven league games.

Won’t be an easy task

Taylor believes that the Dons have a chance of inflicting the Ibrox side’s first league defeat of the season, but he knows that it won’t be an easy task.

“We will look to put in a solid performance. They are flying this season and doing really well” he said.

“They are well drilled, so it will be a tough ask, but we have the players in the squad who are capable of doing it. If we keep putting the right type of balls in the box we know the goals will come” he concluded.

Defence is in good shape

Aberdeen will need to perform well at both ends of the park if they are to pick up a victory over Steven Gerrard’s side. Taylor and his fellow defenders have been in good form recently though. The Dons have conceded only three goals in the last seven league games.

The team has scored eight goals in those games, which isn’t bad, but arguably could have been better, and might have turned some draws into wins. If the Dons can get on the goal trail against Rangers, they could get the win which Taylor knows the players are capable of.
