Nicky Weaver knows he will have to earn his place ahead of Jamie Langfield in the Aberdeen goal. The former England U21 'keeper signed a six-month deal with the Dons on Monday after being released by Sheffield Wednesday. Weaver is keen to get some game-time under his belt for his new club but he knows he will have to work hard to replace Langfield.
Weaver said: "I want to play but I'm sure Jamie will have something to say about that. He's been the number one here for quite some time and he's obviously a very able keeper. I think he played just about every game last year. I'm under no illusions. I don't feel as though I'm going to walk straight into the team. All I can do is my best in training. If and when I get an opportunity, it's up to me to take it."
