Derek McInnes: 'I thought we were well worthy of the point but didn't do

The Dons stayed one point ahead of Pat Fenlon's side in eighth place in the standings but it was a largely forgettable affair.

"I thought it was a committed performance and there was lot of effort from the players," said McInnes.

"When a new a manager comes in there can be that energy to show themselves and tonight I think they were a bit frantic, more than a bit frantic at times, and I thought maybe we forgot to play.

"I thought we were well worthy of the point but didn't do enough to win the game.

"It was probably a performance and result which shows you where we are at the minute and there is certainly work to be done.

"It ended up being a game of two teams going toe-to-toe and I think both teams deserved their point.

"You always have to take the positive of the clean sheet but we wanted to win the game so you come away only half-pleased.

"We have to show more composure in all areas of the pitch at times but I have to credit my players for their appetite for the game.

"But it didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know."
