Aberdeen star Ross McCrorie is confident that the club’s recent goal drought will end sooner rather than later. The Dons have been held to goalless draws in their most recent league games, firing blanks against St Johnstone and Livingston.

As the Dons prepare to face Livingston again this evening, McCrorie is confident that if the team keeps performing the way it has recently, then the goals will come.

Team needs to take chances

However, he does accept that the team does need to start taking the chances they create.

“We need to all chip in for goals. We’re creating plenty of chances. I think the gaffer said before the game (against Livingston) we had 70 odd shots on goal in the last three or four games” he said.

“At the end of the day we’ve got to finish them, and that’ll get us the results. We’ve been keeping the back door shut which is good. We’ve got a good platform to build from. It’s these wee small details that we need to tidy up on. If we keep playing well, like the way we are doing, it’ll come” McCrorie concluded.

Manager signed three strikers

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has moved in the transfer market to try and solve Aberdeen’s lack of goals. The club signed three forwards on transfer deadline day. The trio of Callum Hendry, Florian Kamberi and Fraser Hornby all joined up on loan at Pittodrie.
