Aberdeen striker Curtis Main is ‘pleased’ to have got off the mark for Aberdeen after netting his first Red Army goal.

On a personal note, Main is very happy to be off the mark at Pittodrie.

He told the club’s website: “It is good to get off the mark. It is overdue, but I am pleased it is done with now and I can try and build on it. The goal was a good move and an excellent ball from Lewis with his left foot, I am sure he is pleased with that one.

“I just pulled on the shoulder of the centre half, I thought he was going to nick it. It was a great ball and I was just there to tuck it away. I am confident in my own ability; it is just being on the park and showing everybody what I can do.

“It is nice to get the goals. It is what you expect from your strikers. Overall, I was pleased with the team performance as well, so it is a good day.”

A decent way to open the Aberdeen scoring bank for Main

It’s been a frustrating start to life at Pittodrie for Main. He hasn’t had many opportunities to impress McInnes and had picked up more red cards than goals prior to his Pittodrie strike.

When that moment to score did come though, the ex-Motherwell striker took his opportunity very well.

A great ball into the box from Lewis Ferguson met the diving head of Main, who guided his effort calmly into the bottom corner. It set Aberdeen on the road to victory as they held onto fourth spot.

It’s a potential turning point for the striker and Main will hope his efforts are rewarded with more regular minutes in the coming weeks.
