Dons battle for survival

Click to follow
Aberdeen and Dundee United fight for their Scottish Premier futures at Pittodrie today. Aberdeen, a point behind United and five adrift of third-bottom Partick Thistle, will be relegated for the first time in their 92-year history if they lose. Partick play host to Falkirk, knowing a draw will ensure their survival.

Ray McKinnon is doubtful for Aberdeen with a knee injury, while fellow midfielder, Paul Kane, is ruled out through suspension. The Dutch goalkeeper, Theo Snelders, may be reinstated at the expense of Michael Watt. Billy Dodds and Peter Hetherston play for the last time this season as both start suspensions after today's match.

United have Brian Welsh, Gordan Petric, Dave Bowman and Billy McKinlay suspended, while Craig Brewster will make a late decision on his fitness.
