Lovell, 27, netted a consolation header in the 5-1 defeat and hopes this may convince boss Jimmy Calderwood to give him a run in the first team.

"The goal meant a lot to me. I have not played on too many games so this was a big highlight for me but overall it was disappointing to lose 5-1. I just have to work as hard as I can and hope the manager picks me. There is not a lot more I can do as long as I score goals."

Aberdeen have dropped to eighth in the league and Lovell knows that they are going to have start climbing the table if they are to be competing in Europe again next season.

"The manager has told us that we need to go on a winning streak in the league because we want to get back into Europe next season. Playing against the likes of Bayern is where you want to be."
