Aberdeen had 65% of the possession in that game and 3 of their 12 shot efforts were successful. Six of St. Johnstone’s 14 goal efforts found the back of the net. For St Johnstone, an own goal was made by Remi Matthews (30′).
Barry Robson’s Aberdeen have received rewards for their shots on target a total of 11 times over their previous 6 games, for an average of 1.83 goals per game.
Aberdeen hasn’t lost any of their last three home league games heading into this contest. Kilmarnock enters the match off of a 2-1 Premiership victory after defeating Hearts in their most recent match.
Kilmarnock had 36% of the control in that game and 4 of their 17 shots on goal were successful. Christian Doidge (45′) and Daniel Armstrong (22′) scored the goals for Kilmarnock. Hearts had 10 attempts, 3 of which were on goal. Hearts’ first goal came from Lawrence Shankland at 7′.
According to the statistics, Kilmarnock has been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, allowing the opposition to score 10 goals overall.
Kilmarnock can definitely get better defensively. Whether or not that trend will be continued in this game will be an intriguing question to answer.
When Kilmarnock faced Aberdeen away from home in the previous five league games, according to their previous results, they failed to win.
Not acceptable at all and have gone 18 league games without a victory away from home. What a miserable road trip it has been.
