Former Don Kevin McNaughton feels attack will be the best form of defence for Inverness Caley at Pittodrie tonight.
Caley full-back McNaughton is looking forward to returning to the stadium he graced with distinction before leaving the Dons for Cardiff City in 2006.
The 34-year-old will also be hoping to make his first start for the Highlanders after eight months out with a career-threatening cruciate ligament injury.
But McNaughton warned it would be dangerous for them to try to defend against the in-form Dons, who beat Dundee 7-0 away in their last outing, this evening in the hope of pinching a point.
Even more so with Inverness now needing victories to haul themselves off the bottom of the league and away from relegation trouble.
McNaughton said: “Their confidence will be high after that great result in Dundee.
“We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves, though.
“There’s nothing to lose for us now.
“We’re chasing and we have to win games – it’s simple.
“There’s no sitting back or inviting teams on to us.
“We have to actually go and win the matches. We’ll go into every game now focused on that job.”
“It’s no different against Aberdeen. It’s a tough match but we’ve got to approach it as if we’ve got to win the match.”
McNaughton finally returned to action as a substitute in their 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at the weekend.
He said: “It’s just great to be back involved. It’s been a long road, the longest injury I’ve had, so just making an appearance at all was great.”
