Derek McInnes: Aberdeen manager unhappy with Peterhead defeat

The Dons went three down to a Rory McAllister penalty and a double from Jordon Brown, who was released by the Dons this summer, before Barry Robson and Niall McGinn pulled goals back.

McInnes told the club's official website: "Even although it was a friendly game and we give the players plenty of warning about how they are coming up against a determined team, they did not take notice of those warnings.

"I thought there was a lack of resilience and determination for the three goals we conceded. There was a determination from their boys and credit to Jordon Brown who was excellent throughout. We also did not deal with Rory McAllister in the first half.

"We had a few injuries so we had to reshuffle things and I feel we were a lot better in the second half. I thought we played well and showed more determination but when you give three goals away you are always going to be up against it. It is a worry for me."

Clark Robertson and Russell Anderson were taken off because of injury concerns but McInnes revealed they were more precautionary measures than anything serious.

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
