First the bad news. Aberdeen set a club record on Wednesday night, their sixth consecutive game without a goal, as they lost 1-0 to Celtic. That is a record that must be weighing heavily on manager Derek McInnes and the player. They must be desperate to score a goal as soon as possible.

Now the good news. Aberdeen played well in the game, and could be considered unlucky not to earn a point. Particularly good for the Dons was recent arrival Florian Kamberi. He was unlucky not to score with a shot off the post, and could have earned a penalty for a handball in the penalty box.

Made a decent start at new club

After only two games he looks to be one of Aberdeen’s best players. He also looks like the player most likely to bring the Aberdeen goal drought to an end.

There has to be a chance that the drought will end against Kilmarnock on Saturday. The Rugby Park team are in poor form, and have lost their last seven games in a row, They are also goal shy, having gone three games without finding the back of the net.

 

A bit of luck may be needed

Therefore, many might well predict a goalless draw at Pittodrie on Saturday. However, if Kamberi can repeat his performance against Celtic, then with a bit of luck he can find the back of the net against Kilmarnock.

An early goal for Kamberi, and Aberdeen’s season would be back in business. Only time will tell, but the Dons look to have signed a player that can score a good few goals until the end of the season.
