|Wednesday, October 30|
Tonight’s CIS League Cup tie at Pittodrie is OFF after 21 Aberdeen players were affected by a sickness bug. It has been rearranged for Wednesday, November 6.
In today’s local press, ‘Well boss Terry Butcher hits out at the national press for criticising his side for their poor recent run of form:
However, Butcher admits that Saturday’s game against Partick Thistle is vital:
“If you look at all the games weve played so far this season than youll see weve actually thrown away quite a few points. I can accept when weve been beaten fair and square, but I think the players have deserved more for their efforts than theyve had. Certainly Livingston were down at the bottom, but you look at what a result like they one they achieved against Dundee Utd can do for confidence. Theyve now scored eight goals in two games and I certainly believe were well capable of doing that. However, Im not going to make any drastic changes just because we lost so heavily to Livvy as I believe we are going in the right direction. Its just about the players having the belief to keep on going and if they do then Im confident we can start getting some positive results.”
James McFadden has completed his two-match ban and is available for the trip to Firhill, however David Partridge is still suspended.
Time for a new opinion poll!
