Aberdeen swept Ross County aside 3-0 in their latest Premiership match and Derek McInnes can see improvements in their attack.
Goals from Sam Cosgrove, Ryan Hedges and Greg Leigh secured an easy victory over the Staggies. It moves Aberdeen onto seven points from four games.
McInnes has insisted it was his attack he was particularly pleased with, seeing improvements from their Kilmarnock battle.
He told Red TV: “We spoke last week about a lack of intent, a lack of quality in the forward areas, the lack of movement. I felt like we got that today (Saturday).
“You ask your wide players to contribute with assists and goals, we got that from Niall and Ryan. I thought both of them supported Cosgrove very well.”
Aberdeen attack have to keep pleasing McInnes
It was a positive display against County, a needed one at that. The last few weeks they have toiled a bit, but this week, the Red Army showed what they are all about.
Far too often this season has Cosgrove been the source of Aberdeen’s attacking inspiration. He got on the scoresheet again, but McGinn and Hedges played big roles for the Dons too.
That has to continue going forward. Cosgrove has netted 10 of McInnes’ 18 goals this term. He is a major part of their attack, but it’s good to see others are chipping in with goals.
Hedges has netted twice in three Premiership games and McGinn has notched some assists in league competition this term. They will look to build on this form on Wales and Northern Ireland duty respectively.
It was a good performance against the Staggies, a stark contrast to their 0-0 draw against Kilmarnock. McInnes will hope his attacking players continue to perform in the coming weeks.
