DONS boss Derek McInnes today urged his players to use the power of the Red Army to help their bid to stay in Europe.
McInnes is delighted Pittodrie will house a sell-out crowd for tomorrow’s Europa League qualifier against Spanish side Real Sociedad.
The Dons go into the second leg trailing 2-0 from last week’s meeting in San Sebastian.
But McInnes believes Aberdeen can still go through especially if they deliver a performance good enough to get the bumper Red Army roaring.
McInnes said: “We have to start the game well and get the crowd into it.
“If we can do that and give our fans something to get excited about then it will be game on, we are not out of it yet.
“It won’t be easy because we respect how good a side Sociedad are.
“As they were in the first game, I expect Sociedad to be very professional, disciplined and up for the game.
“We knew as soon as the draw was made that we couldn’t have got it any tougher.
“It’s half-time in the tie and we accept we still have it all to do. But I have a group of players who are fully committed and determined to do the best they can for our supporters.”
