The two games played in the Premiership on Wednesday night must have made for frustrating viewing/listening for Aberdeen fans.
Firstly, despite a decent performance, the Dons went down 1-0 at Celtic Park. Even though Derek McInnes’ side hit the post and had a good penalty claim denied, they once more failed to find the back of the net.
Unwanted club record
Indeed, the Dons have now set an unwanted club record of six games in a row without scoring a goal. Meanwhile, in the other game played on Wednesday, an Aberdeen loanee found the back of the net for the second game running.
Fresh after scoring against Motherwell at the weekend, Bruce Anderson once again scored a vital goal for Hamilton. His goal secured a point against St Mirren, which moves Brian Rice’s side one point clear of Ross County.
Scoring on a regular basis
It certainly seems to be a bit ironic that as Aberdeen toil to score goals, one of their players is now finding the back of the net on a regular basis on loan.
Would Anderson make a difference to Aberdeen at the moment? Who can say. However, it must be frustrating for Dons fans that they can’t buy a goal right now, whilst one of their players has scored two goals in two games.
On the plus side for Anderson, if he can keep finding the back of the net on a regular basis then he could have a real chance of being a regular at Aberdeen next season. For the rest of this season though, all he will be concentrating on is Hamilton.
