Aberdeen extended their unbeaten run to five matches with a thrilling 3-2 win over Dundee on Saturday, but Dons defender Shay Logan reckons there is still plenty of room for improvement after the international break.
David Goodwillie’s second-half header gave the Reds three points after Dundee had twice hit back to level in an exciting match at Dens.
It may have been a riveting watch for the supporters but Logan is keen for his side to eradicate the lapses – with six goals conceded in three games.
He said: “We need to get a balance. I am a defender, so the clean sheet is the number one priority.
“We go into games wanting to win 1-0 and then take it from there. We have been conceding goals, so we will need to work on that.
“We have a good attacking team with plenty of pace, so we always feel we are going to score goals. We just need to keep them out at the other end.
“Our performances will get even better when we stop conceding goals. There is a lot more to come from the team, so, hopefully, we can keep racking up points and better the position we achieved last year.”
Andrew Considine gave the Dons the lead in the City of Discovery inside four minutes to the delight of the 3,500 Dons supporters who had made the journey down. The hosts responded three minutes later through Gary Harkins before a James McPake own goal put the Dons back in front.
A David Clarkson penalty levelled the scores once more before Goodwillie put the match beyond the Dark Blues.
Logan was initially credited with Aberdeen’s second goal which stemmed from a Niall McGinn cross, but Dundee defender McPake got the final touch.
Logan added: “I didn’t get a touch. It wasn’t even one where I could try to claim. It went straight off his head. If he had missed it then it would have been a tap in for me.
“I just put the pressure on after Niall put a great ball in. James McPake had to get his head on it because otherwise I would have got there. It was going to be a goal either way.
“It was an entertaining game for the supporters and it is good for the players to go into the international break with three points.”
