Derek McInnes says momentum building at Aberdeen must start away to Celtic on Wednesday night.

The Dons are on a poor run of form, failing to score in their last five, winning just one of their last nine. They now face a rejuvenated Celtic side who have won their last four games as Aberdeen look to pick up some much-needed results.

Pressure on McInnes is growing from the Pittodrie fanbase but the manager reckons they can try to pick up steam in Glasgow: “We can’t get away from the fact we’ve had five games without scoring, so of course it’s a concern.

“We’ve brought players in to try to change that and the willingness of those lads (Fraser Hornby, Florian Kamberi, Callum Hendry) can’t be questioned. We understand we have to work with them to get up to top speed for them.

“But it’s the stage of the season where we need them firing now. Getting them in so late in the window hasn’t helped that.

“One point doesn’t really get the job done for us, we need to be winning games now to try and get that momentum going through to the end of the season. We’ll go to Celtic on Wednesday and look to do that.

“The commitment from the boys is there, which is great, now we need to demonstrate the quality we have at Celtic Park too.”
