Magennis celebrates the fifth goal at PittodrieAberdeen went nap this afternoon as they defeated Kilmarnock 5-0. This was the first time Aberdeen had hit five in an SPL match since 2000. Langfield made a couple of great saves early on to build the foundation then Aberdeen went ahead in the 15th minute as Vernon prodded home from close range. A second followed ten minutes later when Aluko showed quick feet before drilling the ball past Bell. The scoring continued after the break when Maguire added a third from the spot then Vernon set up McArdle for the fourth. Substitute Magennis completed the route to send the fans home happy.


Aberdeen kicked off in windy conditions although thankfully the rain had eased. In the second minute Maguire had a half chance when he picked up the ball on the edge of the box. He tried to feed Vernon but the ball was intercepted. Two minutes later Aluko weaved his way down the left, but the cross was too strong and Maguire was forced to collect wide on the right. His cross was more dangerous, but Vernon handled, ending the threat.


Vernon makes it 1-0In the 7th minute Kilmarnock won a free kick in a dangerous area and Langfield was forced into a fine save from Eremenko to concede the first corner of the match. The set play came to nothing and a minute later Aberdeen won a free kick in a similar position but the ball was missed by everyone. There was controversy at the other end when Agard almost capitalised on indecision at the back, but having lost his chance he appeared to take a dive and won another free kick on the edge of the box. Once again Langfield made a great save from Eremenko.


This had been a lively start and Aberdeen were soon back on the attack where Aluko forced the Dons first corner. It was easily cleared, but in the 15th Aberdeen went ahead when the ball was worked well on the right. Jack delivered an initial cost that was easily cleared before the ball was played back to him. His second cross, to be fair, wasn't much better, but dogged work from Vernon allowed him to force the ball past Bell. Three minutes later Langfield made another good stop before Aberdeen had two chances within a minute.


Aluko fires home the secondMaguire should have made it 2-0 in the 20th minute when Aluko played a through ball and the youngster had time to tee up his shot, but drilled it wide with only Bell to beat. A minute later a Jack shot took a deflection and was looping into the net when Bell tipped the ball over the bar. The second goal was only delayed until the 25th minute when seconds after Aluko was denied a penalty kick claim, he showed great footwork and drilled the ball into the far corner of the net. Aberdeen had the bit between the teeth now and Jack delivered another tasty cross in the 29th minute, but no one attacked the ball.


A long range effort from Aluko failed to test Bell then Jack and Maguire combined well as Aberdeen looked for a killer third. Kilmarnock fired a warning in the 32nd minute when Kelly was given too much space and fired wide of Langfield's goal. A minute later Maguire made a great turn, but tried for goal from a narrow angle and hit the side netting. Aberdeen were looking impressive still and the Kilmarnock back four were constantly on the back foot. Aluko showed some magic again in the 40th minute, but his through ball to Vernon found the striker in an offside position.


Maguire makes it three from the spotThe first yellow card of the game was shown to McArdle in the 43rd minute as he conceded a soft free kick on the right. Fortunately the free kick was played short and the cross was too long for the Killie attack. Maguire was chasing a long ball from Langfield as the referee brought proceedings to an end. That had been one of the best forty five minutes of football from Aberdeen this season and the 7,000 fans inside Pittodrie were looking for more of the same after the break.


Kilmarnock made a double change at the interval and the visitor's had an early chance that was scrambled clear. Kilmarnock had started the half well, but Aberdeen had a great chance in the 51st minute when a through ball to Vernon presented a chance. However the striker delayed and the ball was booted clear. A minute later Kilmarnock won the first corner of the half, but the set play was comfortably defended. A second Killie corner followed in the 55th minute, but the Dons were standing firm.


McArdle gets in on the act to make it 4-0More great play from Aluko won Aberdeen a free kick on the edge of the box in the 58th minute. Sissoko earned a yellow card for his troubles, but Maguire floated the effort wide. A minute later Aberdeen won a penalty when Maguire outpaced Wright as he chased a McNamee through ball. Wright, who was last man, tripped the youngster and the referee awarded a spot kick. The defender was lucky to escape with only a yellow, but Maguire made no mistake from the spot to make it 3-0.


A free kick in the 68th minute was threaded through by Milsom, but the Killie defence thwarted the chance. Three minutes later Aberdeen extended their lead when a corner was played back across the goal by Vernon to allow McArdle to prod the ball into the net. Six minutes later Kilmarnock carved out a rare chance when Gross fired the ball across the face of the Aberdeen goal. At the other end Aluko had a chance as he juggled the ball inside the Killie area, but slipped at the wrong time.


Paton replaced Young in the 77th minute and three minutes later Magennis replaced Milsom. Aberdeen went nap in the 82nd minute as substitute Magennis grabbed his first SPL goal after Hay slipped and the youngster calmly passed the ball beyond the keeper. The other substitute, Michael Paton, won a corner in the 84th minute, but the ball was scrambled clear as Aberdeen threatened to make it six. With three minutes remaining Myles Anderson made his debut as he replaced Aluko. There were no further incidents and Aberdeen ran out comfortable winners.

Riordan apparently set to join these guys after being club-less since quitting some Chinese mob in November.

Playing in bounce game against der hun today.


According to Daily Retard he is only training with them to keep fit and is still looking to play abroad. Probably sign for them tomorrow then.

Dean Shiels has signed for Kilmarnock until the end of the season, having terminated his contract with Doncaster.


The 26-year-old attacking midfielder spent the first half of the season at Rugby Park, scoring six goals.


And he will be joined by Chelsea left-back Ben Gordon, who is returning for a second loan spell in Ayrshire.

"We do have one or two injuries still hanging over the team. Hopefully Scott Vernon will be ok. Peter Pawlett and Isaac Obsourne are unlikely to make it. We have doubts over others. Rob Milsom is a doubt, Youl Mawene is a doubt.

"Twice this season we have won two games on the bounce and then we have faltered at the third hurdle. We do not want to do that this game. It would be great to get a third victory.


"The last game at Pittodrie against Kilmarnock we gave them two goals of a start and then hit the bar late on. That was one of eight occasions when the woodwork has thwarted us this season. The fact Kilmarnock had a two goal lead here is a warning to us. They are very capable, they beat us at Rugby Park in an even game when they took their chances.


"Saturday is a difficult fixture.


"It should be an attractive game as Kilmarnock like to play football. Kilmarnock are committed to playing right from the back, their manager insists on that style of play. I know Kenny Shiels well from coaching courses in Ireland and I know his philosophy. I respect it and I respect the signings he has made. Despite the fact they have lost influential players like Kyle, Bryson and Touil recently, Kenny's contacts has enabled him to bring in some impressive recruits, not least his own son Dean on loan from Doncaster Rovers.


"When I say that Kenny has done a good job it is no understatement because to take over following the excellent job down by former Dons favourite Mixu Paatelainen was a difficult task and Kenny has done that with aplomb and has introduced his own distinctive playing style to the Rugby Park men.


"I cannot commend our fans enough. I have said it repeatedly and I am not patronising the supporters but it is an exceptional support we have here and I think we would have had more at Forfar had there been more tickets available. We also had a fantastic support at Tannadice. We always get a good backing from the home supporters, the attendances have not been as big as we would have hoped but maybe considering the league position we cannot complain. We have got to get ourselves up that league and then expect to see over the 10,000 regularly."


The manager has yet to publically announce who will be captain tomorrow.


In/Oot: In

Pre-matcher: Driving then Bobbin if time

Match: RDU

Post-matcher: Driving back south then out in the weeg

Prediction: 2-1

Attendance: 9999
