Aberdeen have had a disastrous home run of late with no wins in the last six league encounters on this ground. It is incredible that the last league victory for the team at the Pittodrie Stadium was before Boxing Day. Since then, the FA Cup success over Queen of South is the only strong point for the team. Motherwell may have picked up two big wins in the last three games, but it is difficult to see the team getting an away success. Steve Robinson’s men have been quite mediocre on the road so far this season. Our preview would end up backing a draw.
