Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has made a plea to Dons fans after another game in which his side failed to score, saying he understands their frustrations.
The last time Aberdeen scored was in Scottish Cup action on January 18th. Even then, it was a spot kick in a 1-0 Scottish Cup win over part-time Dumbarton. This Scottish Cup tie would bring no such luck.
They played out a 0-0 draw with Kilmarnock at Pittodrie. It means that the Dons will now need to travel to Rugby Park in over a week’s time to determine who proceeds to the cup quarter-finals.
Next up is Hamilton away from home. Should Aberdeen fail to score in this match, it’ll be the longest run of games without a goal in the club’s entire history.
Some Dons aren’t exactly pleased with the boss or the Aberdeen team just now. It was only a couple of weeks ago that sections of the away support during a 0-0 draw with St Mirren chanted for his exit.
Speaking to the club’s website though, McInnes has empathised with supporters “I totally understand it (the boos). I can talk about the merits of my team today, we were the far better team, we controlled proceedings, bossed the game but up until a point, we don’t score a goal.
“I totally understand the frustrations that come from the supporters. If they don’t see their team win, if they don’t see their team score, there is the frustration.
“That is football and I get it.“We have tried front twos; we have tried everything. We have tried McGinn tucked in behind the front two. We are trying to get as many bodies in support of Sam Cosgrove. We will continue to move onto Tuesday and hopefully we can get not only a goal scoring performance but also a winning one.”
