At the moment Aberdeen are having real problems finding the back of the net. They have not scored a goal in their last five league games.

Manager Derek McInnes must be getting frustrated about the situation, as the lack of goals is currently putting him under pressure, as results have inevitably taken a downturn.

However, there is an Aberdeen player who is currently on loan at another Premiership club who could help Aberdeen’s goal issues. But unfortunately for the Dons, that won’t be until next season.

That player is Bruce Anderson. The 22-year-old was superb for Hamilton in their recent 4-1 Lanarkshire derby win over Motherwell.

Scored and had an assist in recent win

He scored the all-important first goal in the game, and had an assist too. His movement and link-up play caused Motherwell all sorts of problems, and he was deservedly on the winning side.

It is as yet uncertain if Derek McInnes will still be Aberdeen manager next season. However, should Anderson score the goals which keep Hamilton in the Premiership then however is in charge at Pittodrie would no doubt be impressed.

Decent return for loan club

So far Anderson has scored one goal in three games for Hamilton. At the foot of the table where every goal and point are precious, that is not a bad return. It is also more goals than Aberdeen have scored in their last three games.

No doubt those in charge at Pittodrie will be keeping a close watch on how Anderson performs for Hamilton. If he can keep finding the net on a regular basis then next season he could be leading the line for Aberdeen.
