It wasn’t that long ago that Aberdeen’s season looked like it might be coming off the rails. Derek McInnes’ side suffered a 2-1 loss to St Mirren in the Betfred Cup, drew 1-1 with Hamilton and lost 4-0 to Rangers.

The team had to pull together to keep the season on track, and that is what they have done. Since that loss to St Mirren in the cup, the Dons are unbeaten in five, winning three of those games.

Captain Joe Lewis has been impressed with how the Aberdeen squad responded to the poor run. He also sent a message to the other clubs in the league that the Dons will only get better.

“A lot more to come”

“We had a sticky week three or four weeks ago. There have been some disappointing results and some poor performances, but in general there has been some really good play and there’s a lot more to come from us” he said.

Aberdeen’s next run of league games will provide a clue to where they stand this season. On Wednesday they face a difficult looking trip to in-form Livingston, followed by home matches against Dundee United and Rangers.

Next few games are huge for club

If they can come through those three games unbeaten, it would set the club up for a real run at finishing third or possibly even second in the Premiership.

Lewis seems confident that Aberdeen can thrive in the second-half of the season judging by his comments. A good start to that would be ending David Martindale’s unbeaten start as Livingston manager on Wednesday. Aberdeen have the players to do that, but it will be a difficult task.
