Andrew Considine said he reckons the Dons’ great record at Partick Thistle will stand them in good stead ahead of tonight’s game.

Aberdeen travel to Firhill to take on the Jags this evening boasting a brilliant record against them in Glasgow under boss Derek McInnes.

Since the former St Johnstone manager arrived at Pittodrie three and a half years ago the Reds have won five games out of six in Maryhill.

The only loss was in McInnes’ first season, and defender Considine believes their positive experiences will help tonight.

He said: “We’ve got a good record there which I suppose speaks for itself and can give us confidence.

“But it is still a tricky game.

“Every time, even when we’ve played Partick Thistle at home, they’ve always been very hard to beat.”

Considine expects Alan Archibald’s Thistle to throw everything at the Dons.

Partick have been in good form of late. They are unbeaten in four matches and have won their last two games against St Johnstone and Dundee, to lift themselves to seventh in the Premiership table after having a difficult start that had seen them sit bottom of the league.

Due to this form Considine has warned his team-mates it will require a big effort to take all three points.

“It’s going to take a lot from the boys, we are going to have to dig deep,” he said.

“They’ll be coming out all guns blazing at us.

“They’ve picked themselves up lately, they’re scoring goals and they’re playing some really good football.

“That means it’s going to be a really tough game tonight.

“So we have to be prepared for that, but I’m sure the boys will be ready for the challenge.”
