Aberdeen could edge a tight lunchtime encounter against Hearts at Pittodrie.

Derek McInnes' side have been in excellent form recently and are aiming to beat a record set by then just plain old Alex Ferguson in 1986 by winning their ninth home league game in a row. But Hearts are likely to make it tough for them.

Ian Cathro's side had a thumping win last week against Hamilton Accies, but have been inconsistent, especially on their travels.

There has been just one goal netted in their two meetings this season and it's likely to be another close thing.

The Dons, with midfielder Kenny McLean in fine form, can make it nine in a row.
