Aberdeen boss Barry Robson remained in bullish mood after a 1-1 cinch Premiership draw with Dundee saw the pressure on his position ramped up further.
Chants of “We want Robson out” were among the cleaner of those heard around Pittodrie at the end of another disappointing performance, though the clouds briefly cleared after Bojan Miovski converted a first-half spot-kick.
Ester Sokler saw a second goal ruled out five minutes after the interval but from consecutive corners, Lee Ashcroft was first denied by Kelle Roos before then turning home from a second delivery.
The result leaves Aberdeen in eighth place, while Dundee move ahead of Hibs into sixth.
And Robson said: “I thought we looked a bit leggy in the game – it’s the fourth game in 10 days.
“As well as the penalty, if Graeme [Shinnie] had scored then I think we’d have been in a great position to be 2-0 up, and Jamie McGrath misses a great chance to score early in the second half.
“I don’t think we were really good, but I thought we were alright and had enough in the game to win it.
“The fans were applauding when I came and some of them will sing these kind of songs, which is OK. I accept that and I signed up for the job.
“All I can focus on is coming in tomorrow and try to make us better and try to win the next game”.
Dundee boss Tony Docherty, the former Aberdeen assistant manager, admitted his greed after saying he was disappointed to only take a point from the match.
With eight men out for the game, his squad was boosted by the return of defender Owen Beck on loan from Liverpool until the end of the season after a successful first half of the campaign and the youngster could have netted an injury-time winner.
Docherty said: “We’re back into the top six which is progress for us, I can’t credit the players any more.
“There’s a real good spirit and mentality. There’s a toughness that makes me proud as a manager.
“It’s important that we put in a good 45-minute performance tonight, but I’m looking for more. We need to make Dens Park a real difficult arena for anyone to visit.
“To go into that fixture tonight with eight men out and come away disappointed we’ve not won is testament to the players and shows where we are at the moment.”
