Dons can play their part in Tynecastle thriller

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has a full squad to choose from
1 of 1

Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 2, 7.45pm Friday

Expect a Tynecastle thriller when Hearts and Aberdeen face off in what is usually a bruising battle.

The capital side got their first win under new boss Ian Cathro when they trounced Kilmarnock 4-0 on Tuesday while Aberdeen were seeing off the determined challenge of Hamilton. 

The Dons have regrouped after a slump with that win and a decent performance at Motherwell, while Hearts were coming off a four-game run without a win.

Both sides have suspect defences, but Aberdeen probably have the better squad with the likes of Jonny Hayes finding form again.

However, it’s a huge task to win at Tynecastle. Goals from both sides could be the best bet.
