May is getting ruthless

Stevie May insists that the Dons need to get ruthless after failing to take their chances to beat Kilmarnock on Saturday.

“If you look at our squad it’s just about putting it altogether and being ruthless," said the 24-year-old striker, who joined the club from Preston North End in the summer.

“Saturday was disappointing after the start we made. The first 30 minutes was probably as good as we have been.

“We were dominant but it wasn’t good enough from then on. I can’t put my finger exactly on what it was but we seemed to go backwards after we scored the goal.

“It should be the opposite way. That should give us more confidence to go and put the game away.

“It was good to score. It’s always good to score. But it was a disappointing day. It doesn’t take away from the fact we’ve dropped points and we shouldn’t be doing that.

“It was similar against Hearts the previous week. In the first 20 or 30 minutes we were very dominant and failed to get that goal.

“Against Kilmarnock we got the goal and should have been kicking on from then and putting the game to bed.

“Obviously we didn’t do that so it was as disappointing. We scored and it seemed like we were almost a different team.

“Killie came out second half and put in a good performance but we weren’t up to scratch. We can be a lot better.

“They came out attacking after the break and we were slow out the traps. They got the goal and made it difficult for us from there.

“We all know in there that we’re a lot better than that. From the second half it’s clear to see that we can’t play as badly as that.

“We’ve got a big week which starts on Thursday. It’s a huge game for us and we need to be right at it. We’ll get our training into us this week and be ready to go again. It’s one we’re looking forward to and it can’t come quick enough.

“We need everyone playing well. In spells we’ve been really good but it’s just about continuing that on for a full 90 minutes, which we’re more than capable of doing.”
