Who Says Aberdeen Are Having A Poor Season?

Aberdeen are not having a poor season, according to Dundee United manager Craig Levein.

Jimmy Calderwood`s side currently sit in 6th place in the SPL and aren`t really involved in the fight for 3rd top spot, but are likely to have a huge influence over who secures the remaining UEFA Cup spot.

"I reckon in terms of recent league form Aberdeen are up there. They are in good form and I find it quite funny when people say they have had a poor season," Levein admitted to the Dundee Courier.

"Put it this way, if that is going to be a poor season I certainly wouldn`t mind that. They have reached two semi-finals of cup competitions and also done superbly well in Europe."

"They can also still have a big say in the European and league race so we all have something to play for."

Dundee United travel to Pittodrie this weekend, desperate for a win which could see Craig Levein`s side sneak back into 3rd spot - if both Hibernian and Motherwell fail to be the Old Firm sides.

"We have been doing a lot of preparation work on the Aberdeen game and it is a big one for us," continued Levein.

"I think we need to get three points soon because we can`t keep getting draws.

"If Aberdeen beat us on Saturday they are only two points behind us with two games left, but we will be going there with optimism."

Dundee United will have Danny Swanson available for the match, after returning from suspension.

Meanwhile, Willo Flood and Darren Dods are doubts for the match, after struggling with injuries this week, but Levein is hopeful that both will recover in time to make the trip to Aberdeen.
