David Martindale is targeting their first victory over Aberdeen in 16 years

The Livingston boss is looking to win against Aberdeen after 16 years but believes his side have a tough job ahead of them.

Livingston has done very well in recent games, winning his last six games, and is now looking to win against Aberdeen, something unprecedented in the last 16 years. Livingston last won against Aberdeen in the 2003-04 season.

Martindale said:

“That’s two-and-a-half years back in the Premiership and Aberdeen are the only team we haven’t beaten. We have taken points off Aberdeen but they are the only team we’ve not beaten


“They get a lot of negativity but I think they are a fantastic football team. Derek’s done a great job with them and it’s a great squad of players.

“He has built a really successful team. Most years they are in cup finals and they are a really tough team.

“I have always found them to be one of the better teams in the league. When you come up against opponents, I always find it really tough against Aberdeen because they are well-drilled and have very good players.”

“It’s going to be tough but the way we are applying ourselves, we are going to be in the games and give ourselves a chance.

“There’s no doubt how hard the games are going to be but I think we are more than capable as a squad of picking up some points.”
