Edinburgh ACCIES have been warned they face another torrid afternoon when entertaining revitalised Aberdeen Grammar in the Scottish rugby premiership on Saturday.

With a month to go before the league splits the Dons are clinging to a place in the top eight after their biggest winning margin of the season, against Hawks, as they prepare to face Capital rivals coming off a heavy defeat at Stirling.

Dons coach Alex Duncan says: “We now need to consolidate our position in the next two games against Edinburgh Accies and Heriot’s.”

Aberdeen boast a dangerman in winger Erland Oag who, for the second week running, notched a try brace and has six overall this season.

Duncan added: “Erlend not only scored twice but was one of our best tacklers. He’s a real find.”

Others for whom the coach praised included scrum-half Morgan Ward and lock Ed Nimmons but skipper Murray Douglas is battling to recover from a head knock.
