Manager Derek McInnes today backed the Dons’ misfiring strikers to hit the goal trail.
A recognised centre-forward has not scored for the Reds since Adam Rooney netted a hat-trick in the 3-0 defeat of St Johnstone on September 30.
Since then Rooney and summer additions Stevie May and Nicky Maynard have failed to hit the back of the net.
Aberdeen’s leading scorer this century, Rooney, is on four goals this season and May has scored three times – with the last on September 16.
A £400,000 signing from Preston in the summer, May has started seven games since then without netting, while Maynard has yet to score.
Second-placed Aberdeen, who host Motherwell in the Premiership on Saturday, sit just three points behind league leaders Celtic.
McInnes is confident the Reds’ centre-forwards will rack up the goals this season to boost their Premiership campaign.
He said: “I am confident the ability and quality are there at the top end of the pitch for our strikers to go on a good run of scoring goals.
“It is not unusual for front players to go through little spells of not scoring.
“However, they have the quality which is why I always believe that Rooney, May and Maynard will all contribute goals.”
Rooney is Aberdeen’s joint top scorer this season on four goals alongside on-loan Celtic attacker Ryan Christie.
Rooney, who missed the start of the campaign with a thigh injury, has started just five games this season.
May netted three goals in his first two games at Pittodrie but has not scored since, although he has pitched in with a number of assists.
Former MK Dons striker Maynard scored for the Dons U20s in a 2-0 SPFL Development League win over Kilmarnock this week.
The goals in the 2-2 draw at Hamilton before the recent international break came from summer additions Greg Stewart, on loan from Birmingham City, and defender Kari Arnason.
McInnes said: “Greg Stewart played as a centre forward against Hamilton and got his goal.
“Although you would not class Greg as an out and out No9 we played him through the middle at Hamilton.
“It was good to see him scoring last week.”
Meanwhile, McInnes continues to be favourite to succeed axed Pedro Caixinha as Rangers manager.
Speculation surrounding the 46-year-old, who is contracted until 2020, has not let up more than three weeks after Caixinha was sacked.
Feyenoord boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst is also linked with the post.
Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty is another possibility having led the Ibrox club to two victories while in temporary charge of the first team.
The Ibrox club recently confirmed they would not rush into identifying the right candidate, with Rangers director of football Mark Allen whittling down a list of possibilities.
McInnes has continually refused to comment on speculation and is maintaining that stance in the build-up to Saturday’s match against Motherwell.
The Dons boss was happy to welcome back all six of those Dons on international duty with a clean bill of health.
Arnason returned from a 10-day training camp with Iceland in Qatar while Kenny McLean, Ryan Christie and Graeme Shinnie were involved with Scotland.
Scott McKenna and Scott Wright played in two Euro qualifiers for the Scots U21s.
McInnes said: “Everything is fine fitness-wise and there are no problems.
“A couple of senior players (Maynard, Mark Reynolds, Dominic Ball) featured in the reserve match against Kilmarnock to get some game time into them.
“Everyone came through that game well.”
