Aberdeen’s attackers and wingers must produce their A-game at Pittodrie tomorrow to end their poor form against Rangers this season.
The Dons have been below par against Rangers this season having lost all three of their head-to-heads.
That must end in tomorrow’s showdown as Aberdeen do not want to have to go to Parkhead on the final day of the season needing a win to secure second.
It will be party time for Celtic celebrating winning the league title and the Reds have not taken a point at Parkhead in nearly 30 games.
Aberdeen must get the job done against Rangers which will need them to be more lethal in attack and find the right combination of wide players.
That hunt for the right wide combination has been going for most of the season. Players like Gary Mackay-Steven, Niall McGinn and Greg Stewart all have qualities.
Whoever starts will have to bring those attacking qualities against Rangers to get that victory.
In attack, Adam Rooney remains top scorer this season on 11 goals despite not having too many starts.
Rooney normally hits 20-plus goals in a campaign.
In the 0-0 draw against Hibs, I don’t think the partnership with Sam Cosgrove and Stevie May worked as there was not much link up play or understanding.
Aberdeen need to make home advantage at Pittodrie count because victory tomorrow would open up a four-point gap over Rangers with only one game remaining.
That would knock Rangers out of the race to finish runners-up although Hibs would still be able to finish second.
Drawing with Hibs at home was a missed opportunity but it is still very much all to play for.
There is so much at stake in the final games of the season, this is what Scottish football should be providing.
Aberdeen, Rangers and Hibs are all battling it out for that runners-up finish and European qualification.
Having so much riding on the outcome of the match on Saturday was probably one of the main factors in the quality not being to the level I expected. It was a highly competitive game that kept you on the edge of your seat as both Aberdeen and Hibs were both fully commited.
A draw was probably the right result as, although Hibs had a penalty saved and Jamie Maclaren missed a great chance, Niall McGinn hit the underside of the crossbar.
All the other aspects were there with organisation, defensive discipline and closing down.
Aberdeen had that will to win.
They will need to reproduce that, and also bring attacking quality.
