DEFENDER Andrew Considine today claimed the Dons are ready to scrap it out against Hearts in the Premiership’s top three battle.
Considine expects a war of attrition against the third-placed Jambos in tomorrow’s high-stakes clash.
And he warned there is no way the Dons will be bullied or outfought in a game where victory would strengthen their grip on second spot.
With confidence re-established after emerging through a recent dip in form, Considine insists the Dons are up for a battle in the bid to open up a seven-point gap over Hearts.
He said: “It is a huge game for both teams and it will be physical as Hearts get right in your face.
“At Tynecastle earlier this season (3-1 win) it was the same so I imagine for the first 15 to 20 minutes there won’t be much football played.
“However, all the boys in the dressing room are rallied and ready to compete with Hearts
“It will be physical but once it calms down the game will open up.
“We have a lot of pace up front that if we use to our best ability will make it tough for Hearts.
“We have recovered from that sticky patch we had and the confidence is there again.
“Our aim is to open up that gap between ourselves and Hearts by getting the win.”
