Aberdeen got a win, and some goals, under their belts on Sunday with a pre-season victory at Raith.

I think it was important, even though this was only a pre-season friendly, we managed this with the Europa League tie against Rijeka coming up on Thursday so the two-nil win at Starks Park will be welcomed.

Raith, of course managed by former Don Ray McKinnon, offered us a good test and we couldn’t break them down in the first half.

But when our experienced players, something that Raith lacked really, came on in the second half we got the win thanks to goals from Goodwillie and Taylor.

Aberdeen: Brown, Storie (Considine 60), (Hayes 46), Quinn, Rose (Taylor 60), Shinnie, Wright (Flood), Robson, Pawlett (Ross 77), Smith, Goodwillie, Shankland (McLean 60) Sub: Ward

As with most pre-season friendlies it’s the case of getting minutes under your belt with the upcoming season in mind so we’ve benefited on that score.

But I really don’t think we can underestimate the importance of this win, more importantly a couple of goals, to breed a little extra confidence ahead of the meeting with Rijeka.
