Dons stalwart Andrew Considine could be set to have his loyalty rewarded this weekend when Aberdeen face off against Caley Thistle.
The 29-year-old is closing in on a top 10 all-time appearances spot for the Dons and an appearance on Saturday would put him clear in 11th place.
That call up would put Considine at 365 games, ahead of Gothenburg goal hero John Hewitt – and he could go as high as seventh on the list before the season is done.
Fellow defender Eoin Jess is currently in 10th positions with 379 games over two spells at Pittodrie, while Brian Irvine (384), Drew Jarvie (386) and Willie Cooper (389) are also in Considine’s range.
Russell Anderson is in sixth place with 407 appearances.
The next four are taken by Jim Leighton (535), Stewart McKimmie (561), Bobby Clark (595) and Alex McLeish (693).
The record for most appearances is held by former captain and manager Willie Miller, who, at a tally of 797 over 20 years, is unlikely to ever be surpassed.
