Aberdeen boss Barry Robson has urged his team to transfer their European performances into domestic form as they look for their first cinch Premiership win of the season against Ross County.
The Dons host County in the first of a double header before travelling to Dingwall in the Viaplay Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.
Aberdeen have only beaten Stirling in nine matches this season, but they came close to pulling off a shock result against Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany on Thursday in a 2-1 Europa Conference League defeat, Ester Sokler missing a good chance to level in stoppage time.
Robson was also encouraged by their performances against Swedish champions Hacken in the Europa League play-offs and is desperate for his side to kick-start their league form.
“We have performed really well in Europe. I thought we were really unlucky against Hacken, we had 26 shots against Hacken and Thursday’s game was different,” he told Red TV.
“I said to the players you have got to be tactically bright on the pitch when you go into European games, there are a lot more things you can predict and a lot more thing you can organise and get right.
“Whereas the Scottish Premiership is a bit different, things can happen out the blue and it’s a lot more direct.
“Over in Hacken we showed real control and came back to draw 2-2 and at home we had the place rocking. The Celtic game we got the place going as well.
“It’s just trying to get it continuous. We are trying to get that every week into a rhythm, into a run, and that will come.
“We have two really difficult games against County and the Scottish league is really important for us and we need to make sure we perform well in that.
“We have been really good in Europe this year and we need to start getting that into our league form.
“I am pretty confident that will come because we need to start getting going in the league. I just want to take this rhythm into the league.”
