STRIKER Rory Fallon has vowed to end his SPL scoring drought with Aberdeen FC to keep his World Cup dream alive.


The New Zealand international is set to return to action against Dunfermline on Saturday after serving a one-match ban.


Fallon has yet to score in the SPL since penning a two-year deal with Aberdeen FC.


No surprise he is to play as other than his ban he has played every game since he signed and mostly starts.

Youl Mawene was the player put forward to speak with the media this week.


"Obviously it is a crucial game with the bad run we are on. With the St Johnstone game being postponed and the defeat to Motherwell last week we really need to get stuck in and get three points. There is no other way to look at it.


"When you are not winning at home you have to try and go away and do something. We have dropped too many points at home this season so we are going to have to catch up by winning games on the road.


"When you are not winning the week is always a bit longer. The mood is not as great in training but we just have to keep working hard at it and believe we are going to turn a corner and pick up results. Youl Mawene at training today


"That hard work includes spending a lot of time watching the recent games on the video. We analysis every performance. From watching the games again you can see we have created chances and there is a high work rate and desire but we are not quite there yet. Whether it is a lack of luck I don't know but the performances have not been that bad.


"Confidence is a big factor here. We have to believe in ourselves a little bit more. We also need a bit more of a mental toughness to win these close games. We have to cut out the defensive mistakes as well.


"When you are not winning you start to look to someone to do something special to get the team out of jail. That has not happened though. We just as a team need to keep working hard and focus on trying to get the basics right - keep a clean sheet, do the defensive things right and offensively take our chances. Hopefully when all that comes together we will win games.


Youl Mawene at training today "The Dunfermline game at Pittodrie was probably our most convincing performance this season, especially going forward. We have not scored many goals this season but in that game we created a lot of chances and managed to take them as well. They will be looking for some sort of revenge after that game so I think Saturday will be a different type of game. I look at it as a tough game. They are in a similar position to us.


"Having Rory (Fallon) back is a good thing. He is really good in the changing room as well. Rory is a positive guy and he always looks to try and improve the players around him and do a good job for the team. He is a real team player. The last game we missed his presence on the pitch.


"There was a lot of talk before the Motherwell game about the run of matches we have coming up and chance we have to go on a run. Now we just need though to focus on each game at a time. Focus 100% on Saturday. Try and get three points and worry about the other games afterwards.
