Dons Boss Not Happy With Pittodrie Pitch
Written by RockSport on March 5, 2018
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes bemoaned the state of the Pittodrie pitch as Kilmarnock earned a 1-1 Scottish Cup quarter final draw in the north east to take the Dons back to Rugby Park for a replay.
“It’s a difficult surface and I’d even say that Kilmarnock’s flair players, the likes of Jordan Jones, struggled to run with the ball on it,” he said.
“It’s more for playing percentages, pragmatically. It’s the same for both teams, but certainly for our players we never quite had that spark.
“We shouldn’t be accepting of the surface. We spent a lot of money on it in the summer, and I’m well aware of how hard our ground staff are working on it, but we’re deserving of a better pitch.”
