Aberdeen are definitely in an identity crisis. Their away record is superb. They are unbeaten in their last nine away games in all competitions, with eight wins. In the last week, they drew with Celtic and defeated Rangers in Glasgow.
However, their form at Pittodrie is a completely different story. They have not won any of their last seven home games in all competitions. The most recent disappointment was Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Livingston.
Derek McInnes will have to find a solution to this issue, as it is ending any chance Aberdeen have of catching Rangers in the league table.
The Dons only matched Rangers’ result on Saturday – they drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock – the points difference between the sides remains at eight points.
More worryingly for Aberdeen, Kilmarnock remain only one point behind them in the league table.
It must be a psychological thing for the players. The pressure of playing at Pittodrie must be too much for the players to cope with.
McInnes will be relieved that the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic is in Glasgow, as if it was in Aberdeen the Dons would most probably lose.
Perhaps all the Dons need is one good result at home to kickstart their form. At the moment though, there is no sign of an upturn in Aberdeen’s results at Pittodrie.
