Aberdeen losing 1-0 at home to St Johnstone on Saturday extended the Dons’ run of games without a win to seven – but Pittodrie striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas has backed Stephen Glass’ side to turn things around soon.

Despite having several chances to score against the Saints, Aberdeen drew a blank as they made it two games in the league in a row without hitting the net, with ex-Aberdeen striker Stevie May scoring the winner for Saints with only six minutes remaining.

JET, who moved to Aberdeen from Livingston over the summer, is confident that run will end soon and insists the Dons are playing well even if they aren’t getting the results to go with their performances.

“It won’t be long before everything gets better as we have a lot of striking options,” JET said [P&J].

“We have quality, ability, and a diversity of all different types of attacking players. It is just a matter of time because we work well on the pitch. We work on attacking play, finishing and lots of different things amongst ourselves. It is seven games without a win, but we have controlled games with 70 percent possession.

“It is not as if we are playing badly. We have struggled for goals recently and that is the main thing we need to turn around and work on.

“That is where games are won and lost and that has to be our focus. As a whole, we keep pushing on the training pitch. That is where a lot of work is done.

“Obviously, in the games we have to keep doing the right things and making the right decisions. Once we do that we will turn it around.

“We just hope it will happen sooner rather than later and from there we will push on.”
