Dons boss Derek McInnes has backed his attackers to make the difference against Rangers at Hampden.
Aberdeen face the Gers in the League Cup semi final at the national stadium today (4.30pm).
In high-stakes games, moments of quality or mistakes are usually the difference between winning and losing.
McInnes’s Reds head into this last-four clash with on-loan Manchester United striker James Wilson back in the fold, after he returned from injury to play in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Hearts at Tynecastle.
Wingers Niall McGinn and Scott Wright also returned after spells on the sidelines in last weekend’s capital clash.
Having them available alongside the likes of Gary Mackay-Steven and Lewis Ferguson gives McInnes plenty of firepower in attack. And the Pittodrie gaffer is confident he has the forwards in his squad to turn the match in the Dons’ favour.
McInnes added: “He (Wilson) certainly has the quality to make the difference in games.
“A lot of games are defined by mistakes and concentration or key moments of quality.
“He is one of the players we have in the squad who can produce those moments of quality and hopefully he can on Sunday.
“We’ve got good options now. Niall McGinn has come back – he only trained last Thursday and was never down to start against Hearts. Scott Wright has been out a long time so our attacking options are there.
“Gary Mackay-Steven is another who has done well. We’ve got good pace and good options in attacking areas and that’s something we’ve not always had the luxury of this season.”
McInnes is also hoping for a victory on Sunday to help create a feel-good factor around Aberdeen again, after a patchy start to the season.
In the league this term the Dons have claimed only 12 points from nine games – a return that sees them sitting seventh in the table.
He added: “We all know the benefits of a strong cup run – both financially and the bounce you can get from it.
“We’re well aware of the feel-good factor you can get from a cup run. It’s our seventh semi-final in five and a bit years.
“We know the contrast in emotion and what a semi-final win can deliver so hopefully we can deliver that and have a cup final to look forward to.”
While he has faith in his Reds, McInnes is not underestimating the challenged posed by Rangers.
Steven Gerrard’s team are five points and two places better off than Aberdeen in the league.
But McInnes is relishing the task and says that to wins cups, you need to eliminate top teams – as the Dons did in the quarter-final in beating Hibs on penalties.
He said: “We’re well aware of the tough task ahead of us. But you don’t get to cup finals without beating good teams. We’ve beaten St Mirren already.
“We went down to Easter Road and got through on penalties to beat a really good Hibs team, and to get to the final we’re going to have to beat a very good Rangers team.”
