Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes wasn’t happy with the defensive errors made by his side in the recent 1-1 draw with St Johnstone.
The Dons took the lead in the game thanks to a Ryan Hedges goal. However, a series of mistakes led to a Michael O’Halloran equaliser.
The Pittodrie side were forced to settle for a point. McInnes wasn’t happy with what he saw from his players.
“All too familiar”
“Saturday was self-inflicted and all too familiar of last season” McInnes said, as reported by the Press and Journal.
“We allowed the cross to come in when we shouldn’t have, and we allowed Michael O’Halloran too much space, and we allowed a weak shot to get into the net.”
“We need to find more composure” the Dons boss concluded.
Manager correct to be annoyed at errors
Aberdeen have not been helped by a host of injuries to key men so far this season. However, McInnes is right to be annoyed at the errors.
Had Aberdeen managed to hold on for the win, it would have been a good three points. The Dons would currently be sitting level on points with Motherwell.
However, the failure to win the game has the Dons in joint fourth place, ahead of a trip to Livingston, who are on the same number of points as the Dons.
Aberdeen have been inconsistent so far this season. They have two wins and two draws from five league games. To turn some of those draws into wins in the future, they will need to cut out the errors McInnes has talked about.
