Five Easy Pieces
Can Derek McInnes make a difference to Aberdeen
Mark Reynolds is looking to deliver five wins from the final weeks of the SPL season as Aberdeen look ahead to next season under new manager Derek McInnes. The first game under the new regime takes place tomorrow in Edinburgh as Hibs welcome Aberdeen to Easter Road. Craig Brown's final game in charge resulted in a1-0 loss to Dundee United which meant Aberdeen will finish a fourth consecutive season in the bottom six of the top flight. Reynolds admits they need to show their supporters there is scope for improvement.Reynolds said: "It's five big games. I know the season is over in terms of doing something in the league but I think everyone is looking forward towards next season now. The fans and players want to build something and it's important we show a style of football and that the team he (McInnes) is going to put together can do something next season - and excite the fans and bring them in. There are five massive games. We are looking to win the five of them and have spoken about that. There is no reason why we can't. On our day we are as good as anyone in the league. It's important we show the supporters that we will have a decent team next year and that it's going to be something that can challenge at the right end of the league."Hibs will be on a high after their Scottish Cup semi-final comeback against Falkirk. However,t Reynolds has noticed a fresh spark about the Dons squad since McInnes started taking training. Reynolds went on: "When a new manager comes in there is a wee bit extra energy and brightness with new ideas. Everyone is out to impress - players who have been playing want to show why they have been getting the nod and the other players are trying to show why they should be there. There are also boys who are playing for a contract. There are a lot of factors but everyone has upped their game because the new manager is in and everyone is looking to impress. It's always like that when any new manager comes in at any club."
