Aberdeen

Saints first met Aberdeen in the 1905/06 season, winning 4-2 at Love Street on the 30th September 1905, in what has been one of the most regular fixtures in Scottish football since.

In major competitions, the clubs have met 241 times going into the 2019/20 season with the Dons winning the head to head matches by 127-63 and the other fifty one matches drawn.

Currently, Aberdeen are on their best ever run of against Saints; unbeaten in the last nineteen matches stretching back to 2011, and this followed the Paisley clubs best run against the Dons, eight games without defeat all under Danny Lennon at the start of the decade.

The clubs have also met in two cup finals, both in the 1950’s, with Saints gaining revenge for the 2-1 1955 League Cup defeat to the Dons by comprehensively winning the Scottish Cup in 1959 in front of over 108,000 supporters, where the magnificent front line of Baker, Bryceland, Miller, Rodger and Gemmell excelled during a 3-1 win.

Saints and the Dons have been in the same Division on 82 occasions, and Aberdeen have finished above Saints sixty two times, with 2018/19 campaign the most recent. For Saints, the last of the twenty occasions they managed this feat was 2010/11 under Danny Lennon.
