Dons boss Derek McInnes takes pride in matching club records and says it would great to set a new milestone against Celtic tomorrow.
Aberdeen have won their last seven away matches, equalling records set in 1936 by Paddy Travers’ team and in 1971 when Eddie Turnbull was manager.
Victory at Parkhead this weekend will move McInnes’ Reds out on their own when it comes to consecutive triumphs outwith the Granite City.
Although the Pittodrie gaffer is not focusing too much on that record, he says he would be happy to break it by beating the Hoops and spoiling Neil Lennon’s return to Parkhead as a manager.
McInnes said: “Every season we’ve been here, there always seems to be something we have managed to achieve when it comes to records.
“Whether it is unbeaten runs, wins at home or clean sheets, there always seems to be something that we get close to.
“Ultimately the job is to go to try to get the three points tomorrow and if we can break a record when doing so then that’s great.
“The fact we have managed to equal the club record for away wins suggests how focused and how good the team have been on the road.
“Now we go into two games (Celtic and Rangers at Ibrox in the Scottish Cup quarter-final replay on Tuesday) that will be full houses with good atmospheres and there will be a lot on both games.
“I think that brings the best out of my players.”
McInnes has been impressed with the way his Reds handle the big occasions against the likes of Rangers and Celtic.
He thinks that mentality could be important over the next few days as they face the Hoops tomorrow and the Gers on Tuesday.
He added: “I think we are quite a young team this season – we have more youngsters involved this year.
“But there has been a good temperament from everyone that has been involved in these type of games.
“You need that belief in any game, but when you go away from home, whether it is Ibrox, Celtic Park or Hampden, you need to have that to do the job well.
“You know you won’t get it all your own way, so you need to have the belief that you will get the result if you keep doing the right things.
“That’s how we view this game, that we will have to surrender a lot of the ball at times and we’re going to have to defend well.
“Celtic will ask the question of us, but behind everything we do there is a way of playing which will help us create opportunities, and hopefully we’ll take them.”
The Dons have doubts over Gary Mackay-Steven, Greg Stewart and Niall McGinn for tomorrow’s clash.
Mackay-Steven was subbed after 15 minutes of Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Rangers after being caught heavily on his calf by Connor Goldson to win the penalty for Aberdeen’s goal.
The winger was sent for an X-ray which showed there was no severe damage, but it is taking time to settle down.
McInnes said: “We’ve got a couple of concerns with Gary Mackay-Steven, Greg Stewart and Niall McGinn.
“They are being treated for knocks, but we are hopeful all of them will be fit for Saturday, but we should have a better idea closer to the game.
“Gary’s X-ray was fine as we thought it would be, that was just a precaution.
“It’s nothing serious, but he has taken a really bad impact on the back of his calf and we just hope it heals in time and he’ll be able to play.
“He was a doubt for the Rangers game with his ankle and now he’s a doubt for Celtic with his calf so he’s not had his troubles to seek, but hopefully he’s ok for this game.”
