Scott Vernon is determined that Aberdeen should end Celtic's winning run in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Saturday.
Celtic have won 17 SPL games in succession and 20 in all domestic competitions ahead of their trip to Pittodrie.
Striker Vernon, who has 12 goals this season, told Red TV: "We have five SPL games left before the split, starting with Celtic. We know it is going to be a tough one but the mind-set is going to be right and we are going to be up for the game, that's for sure."
He added: "We know their strengths are the quality in the team all over the pitch so we have to do our best to disrupt their flow of football and stamp our authority on the game and try and produce things ourselves."
The Dons drew 1-1 with St Mirren last weekend. It was their sixth draw in their last eight SPL games.
"We are grinding out results," Vernon added.
"I am an experienced player and all through my career I have seen teams like this who grind out results when they are not playing well.
"We have got ourselves into a good habit of doing that and long may it continue.
"Obviously we want to play better and play more attractive football and more entertaining stuff for the fans but at the end of the day, the result is the thing that matters."
