Aberdeen should travel to Norway with no fresh injury concerns despite a couple of players taking knocks during the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock.
A fine goal from Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie sealed a fifth Dons victory on the spin as they beat Killie 1-0 at Pittodrie. It’s good form ahead of a big Europa League trip to Norway to face Viking Stavanger this Thursday.
There were perhaps some slight concerns fitness-wise at full time in the Granite City over the weekend. McCrorie headed down the tunnel head to toe in ice whilst Andy Considine had a small hamstring problem.
It shouldn’t result in anyone missing the Norwegian trip according to Dons boss McInnes as he explains his satisfaction in securing another big victory.
“I am very pleased with today’s victory and it keeps the winning run going,” said McInnes (Red TV). “I am pleased with a lot of the aspects of today’s play particularly the speed in the team and the quick support we got up the park,
“I thought the goal was an example of that. We countered from deep and it was a real quality finish from Ross McCrorie. It wasn’t an easy finish, but he made it look a lot easier than it was.
“He said was okay after the game (McCrorie), but he didn’t look okay! He had ice all over his body. I probably should have taken him off a bit earlier and his running had been affected by the knocks he had picked up. He likes to get involved and he won plenty of tackles in there. I think he will be fine.
“He (Tommie Hoban) has been very good, he is coming from a long way back in terms of minutes. He will improve the more games that he plays. We have still got to manage his week through his training and games. He will be available for Thursday, if he plays then he can’t play on Sunday.
“Andy felt his hamstring a wee bit at the start of the second half, but it came to nothing. I think we should be as we are going into the game in Norway.”
