Nothing but positivity after reinvigorated Aberdeen‘s Ibrox showing - despite bizarre John Beaton penalty call

October 28, 2021

This week, we hail Christian Ramirez, Dean Campbell and Scott Brown after Aberdeen's draw at Ibrox. A performance for the defender-less Dons to be proud of – despite John Beaton’s soft, soft penalty award robbing them of the win - with the top-six within touching distance. We also fawn over Harry Clarke and Joseph Hungbo after Ross County’s fantastic five against Dundee - their first victory in the Premiership. And Inverness' struggles to break teams down see them fall off Championship's top spot.

This week, we discuss the high-stakes situation at Pittodrie as Aberdeen gear up for games against Hibs then Rangers. Stephen Glass has Dave Cormack's backing - and, he insists, final say on transfers - but does he need to adopt a pragmatic approach in the upcoming nightmare run? Malky Mackay, too, is facing big decisions to stop Ross County counting themselves out of matches. Does he put keeper Ross Laidlaw back in? Plus, we back Inverness to take care of Raith and Arbroath, Cove to recover from their East Fife blip, Peterhead to continue their out-of-the-blue revival, and hope Elgin can do the business in front of the TV cameras against Clydebank.

Big moment for Aberdeen v Dundee, Ross County should target seven, and Billy Mckay too good to refuse at Inverness

It's a big weekend for Stephen Glass' Aberdeen with Sean Wallace giving us his view the Premiership clash with Dundee can either be the catalyst which turns around the Dons' season, or a crippling blow ahead of tough games with Hibs, Hearts and Rangers. Meanwhile, winless Ross County should be targeting seven points against St Mirren, Livingston and Dundee, according to Paul Chalk, who also expects to see Billy Mckay get his Championship starting chance for Inverness this weekend. All that, plus chat about Cove's Ola Adeyemo, Peterhead's potential new boy Grant Savoury, and Elgin's Conor O'Keefe.

This week on Northern Goal, Aberdeen's slack backline is again the big issue as they're defeated by struggling Celtic. Can Stephen Glass fix his team during the international break and ahead of a must-win clash with rock-bottom Dundee? We also discuss the fine margins keeping Ross County from their first victory, and how Caley Thistle lost their unbeaten record against Hamilton. Plus, a crazy 25-second red card and a still-lethal Rory McAllister sees Cove get a big win over Alloa, but they are still upstaged in League One by five-goal Peterhead.
