DEREK McInnes today insisted Aberdeen will remain unified in the fight to haul themselves out of their recent slump.
A bad week for the Dons got even worse as they crashed 2-0 away to Ross County for a fourth successive defeat.
It is the first time in McInnes’ two and a half years at Pittodrie that Aberdeen have lost four successive games and he admits he is “baffled” by the sudden reverse in form.
McInnes today reassured the Red Army his team will fight together to rediscover that form.
He said: “We enjoyed winning together and when we lose, it is together, and we have to take collective responsibility to rediscover our winning form.
“We will work hard together to do that and turn this around.
“There is no finger pointing or blaming this one or that one.
“If we keep working together and keep positive, we are good enough to start winning games.
“However, it makes it more difficult the way we have defended in the last few games.
“We accept that but we will improve.
“It is probably the inconsistency that is baffling in terms of results.”
Aberdeen were without skipper Ryan Jack for the clash as the midfielder was ruled out on the day of the game through illness.
He said: “Ryan was in the team before we travelled but he started feeling ill when we got to the hotel on Thursday.
“He had sickness through the night and was struggling.
“Ryan was up against it on the morning of the game.
“So we made a call on it.
“Hopefully, we will have our captain back for next week.”
