Aberdeen are set to have a very January after their postponed game against Livingston was given a new date. The match, which was set to take place on the 30th of December but was cancelled because of a frozen pitch, will now take place on the 13th of January.

The new date means that Aberdeen are set to face a very busy January schedule. The Dons are set to play six league games, starting with a home match against Dundee United on the 2nd of January.

Three games in six days

That is then followed by three games in six days against Rangers, Livingston and Ross County. The month ends with games against Motherwell and St Johnstone. The month will end with a Scottish Cup tie. So that is seven games that Derek McInnes’ side will need to navigate in January.

That won’t be easy for Aberdeen, or indeed any club in Scotland that would have to play seven games in a month. However, Aberdeen agreed to the schedule. So they must be confident that the squad can deal with the games the team will play.

The three games in six days will be a real test. However, the team could thrive if they get off to a good start to the month.

Clubs will be hoping weather doesn’t intervene

The club will be hoping that the notorious Scottish weather doesn’t strike once more and force any more postponements. That is the last thing that Aberdeen or indeed the SPFL will want to happen.

Only time well tell if more games get cancelled over the next few weeks. But at least the clubs didn’t waste much time in getting the game rescheduled.
