The Dons are currently leading the pack which includes Motherwell and Dundee United, who they play this weekend at Pittodrie.

United and Aberdeen also have a realistic chance of winning the Scottish Cup this season, and Jackie McNamara's team have won eight of their last nine games.

"There's some good teams round about us so there is still a lot to play for but there's still a lot to miss out on."
