Defender Andrew Considine today warned there can be no slip-ups in the Dons’ fight for the Premiership title.
Aberdeen trail champions Celtic by one point in the scrap for the league crown with only eight games remaining.
The Dons are today set to face flu-ravaged Motherwell at Fir Park as the bid for a first title since 1985 reaches the high pressure finishing straight.
Well had indicated they could appeal to the SPFL to have today’s game postponed if their squad became further decimated by flu.
With the illness situation easing off yesterday it was confirmed the Fir Park game will go ahead.
A bumper 2,500-strong travelling Red Army will cheer on the Dons and Considine, 28, accepts it is win or bust to keep the heat on Celtic.
He said: “If we are to do anything we need to get a result in each game, it’s as simple as that.
“Every one of the boys know that and there’s no point hiding from it.
“We know how important wins are at this stage, and that we can’t afford to slip up.
“But confidence is high and we know what we have to do.”
