Aberdeen star Ross McCrorie is “confident that the tide will turn” after a poor start the season saw the Dons fail to win in their last seven games under Stephen Glass and left the Dons desperately needing to start getting points on the table if they want to challenge for European places.

The Pittodrie side make the trip to Paisley to face Jim Goodwin’s St. Mirren and McCrorie doesn’t think the Dons have been playing poorly recently, despite their lengthy run without a win.

Glass has added plenty of quality to his squad since taking the reins from Derek McInnes earlier this year and that is something McCrorie thinks should see the Dons come out the other side of their poor form and turn things around – starting with the Buddies.

“Sunday is a big game, like every game. It is a game we are all looking forward to. The previous results have not been good enough and we will look to rectify that now,” McCrorie said.


“We are now back to one game a week. We have had a good training week so far and we still have a few more days to go. We have been training well as a team and hopefully we will start to see the fruits of that work.

“We will have our game plan and we will try and execute it as well as we can.

“I would not necessarily say we have been playing badly. We just need to tidy up on the small details. We have to eradicate the mistakes we are making.

“I think once that happens then things will start to click into place.

“We have been dominating games in terms of possession. But we know we need to start turning that possession into results. Hopefully once we get that win and three points, we will get ourselves going on a run.

“We are confident that the tide will turn.

“We can’t change the past, those previous games are gone now. We have to kick start our season on Sunday and try and accumulate as many points as we can from now.

“It is very early days. We are only a small number of games into what is a long season. If you look at the squad we have got and the players we have got in the team, I am more than confident that we will turn things around. There are still a lot of games left.

“The quality we have here, you see it day in day out. We have a real depth to the squad as well. In the games, some of the play has been good. 100% it is the small details that we need to tidy up on and if we do that, we will be firing on all cylinders again.”
