Iain Vigurs hopes Motherwell can draw inspiration from winning twice at Pittodrie last season when they travel to face Aberdeen on Friday.

’Well won 1-0 on both trips to the Granite City, including the dramatic last day victory that clinched second place in the league at the expense of Vigurs’s home town team.

However, first they will need to dust themselves down after another poor weekend that saw ’Well go down 3-1 to Dundee.

Vigurs said: “You go in with a game plan and two minutes in you’re a goal down and you wonder how it has gone wrong already.

“But we have to get our act together, we’re not doing what we were last season, but if we keep plugging away it will come good because we have a good group of boys.

“We are putting pressure on the defence by not scoring enough, personally I need to start adding goals to my game and we all know we need to be chipping in.”

The Pittodrie trip is the first of three Friday night games in a row with St Johnstone away and Dundee United at Fir Park to come.

Vigurs said: “Last season we had two wins at Pittodrie so we can take inspiration from that and try to forget what has been happening the last few weeks to start fresh.

“It will be a hard game because they’ve a good squad, but we know what we are capable of and just need to start doing it.

“Two away trips are not ideal for a Friday, but it doesn’t matter what day you play on so long as you put in a good performance.

“We need a win to get us going and who knows maybe playing on a Friday will be that little intangible that gets us over this current blip.”
