Aberdeen's poor home form should not be a reason to panic, says Dons assistant manager Jimmy Nicholl.

Aberdeen's poor home form should not be a reason to panic, says Dons assistant manager Jimmy Nicholl.

He said: "If you are losing two or three-nil at home and you have been really poor defensively and you aren't creating chances then you have got problems. I don't feel like we have problems.

"We've got a few new players in and we are trying to do a couple of new things.

"It is still early in the season and I have no doubt that we can win those points back. I wouldn't like to think that the players are feeling apprehensive or low in confidence because of the home form this year.

"We know we have got a hard job to do against Kilmarnock but we have won matches like this on previous occasions.

"As long as you are doing the right things, defending properly and cutting out the mistakes then the results will follow."
