Dons can play their part in Tynecastle thriller
BT Sport 2, 7.45pm Friday
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.

Hearts will be without Scotland right back Callum Paterson, who was ruled out for ten months this week and Sam Nicholson. Don Cowie is also unlikely to feature.
Aberdeen have a full squad to pick from.
