McInnes feels for McCul­loch

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

ABERDEEN man­ager Derek McInnes ad­mits he has sym­pa­thy for Kil­marnock boss Lee McCul­loch as t he t wo pre­pare to go head to head this week­end.

McCul­loch’s Kil­marnock have made a slow start to the sea­son, tak­ing j ust one point from their open­ing five matches ahead of Satur­day’s trip to face t he Dons i n t he Lad­brokes Premier­ship.

H o w e v e r, M c I n n e s , whose Aberdeen side are un­beaten and cur­rently sec­ond i n t he l eague, ex­pects McCul­loch to get his play­ers fir­ing be­fore long.

“It’s very early,” he said. “You see a lot of teams have slow star ts and Kil­marnock have prob­a­bly the big­gest turn­around in play­ers (in the league).

“I think Lee has prob­a­bly made the most sign­ings (14) and with that comes that ex­tra re­spon­si­bil­ity to try and find that un­der­stand­ing, so that may be a fac­tor.

“But when you look at the squad, they have some good play­ers. Last year they picked up some very good re­sults on the road and I t hink t hey’ll be con­fi­dent com­ing here.”
