McGhee aims to stop the rot at Kilmarnock

By Michael Gannon


Published: 26/11/2010


Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee is confident he has the players at his disposal to stop the rot against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park tomorrow.


The Dons need to halt an alarming slump towards the foot of the table due to a nightmare run of 10 defeats in their last 12 matches.


McGhee remains under pressure and will be without suspended defender Rory McArdle for this week and next week’s visit of Celtic but he has faith in the rest of his squad to mount a revival.


He said: “It is important to win, not just for my future, but from our league position and hopes for the season. We have to start somewhere and the sooner the better.


“We have a group of players who are capable, we just need to start doing it.


“A few weeks ago I questioned whether we had enough fit players to go to Inverness and win the game.


“This time we go to Kilmarnock with a group which have enough about them.”


McGhee admitted simply avoiding defeat would be a start. Aberdeen have gone 14 matches without a clean sheet, conceding 32 goals in that time.


He knows his defence must shore up and a point at in-from Kilmarnock would be far from a disaster.


He said: “It would be a turning point if we stopped losing.


“One of the disappointing things is we have not been able to draw some of the games we have lost, which we could have quite easily done against St Mirren, Kilmarnock and others.


“Those points would have got us closer to teams above us and might not have made our recent record look quite as bad.


“If that is what it will take to turn the corner then that’s what we will have to do.


“We will take what comes but obviously the more points the better.”


McGhee has been buoyed by the backing he has received by Dons supporters but he knows it will only be a season of goodwill if his side starts producing positive results.


He said: “Everyone has been brilliant around the club. The supporters have given us some breathing space and the benefit of the doubt. They are now waiting for that result and to see us kick on before Christmas.


“The coaching staff and the players believe we can turn it round.”


The Dons were forced to train indoors at the Aberdeen Sports Village yesterday.
