Hello folks, I'm Howard Crossland and this is Aberdeen vs Hearts.

Here are the Aberdeen fellas:

And the Hearts men:

We're off, Aberdeen get us underway.

Aberdeen looking to go back up to 2nd with a draw or win tonight. Hearts are destined to finish 6th, so are probably on the beach.

Not much happened in the first few minutes, but Aberdeen have started the more lively and Shinnie hits a stinging 25 yarder that is parried away.


Chris Sutton is on co-commentary this evening, already moaning about why does it always rain on him (because he lied when he was 17), why are Freddo's so expensive these days and berating the incompetence of Michael Fish getting the weather wrong in 1987.

10 mins, bit better from Hearts as they look for a foothold in the game. They are playing in blue tonight. I, meanwhile, am playing Blue.

You've not missed much in the first 13 minutes here in Aberdeen. If you're wondering what's happening at the Greatest Royal Rumble, the Undertaker started walking to the ring around kick off, and should reach it by half time.

Aberdeen corner!
