LOAN WATCH: Man City loanee Nwakali makes debut for Aberdeen

Aberdeen have gone back to winning ways after defeating Kilmarnock 3-1 this weekend, as Manchester City loanee Chidiebere Nwakali made his debut for the club.

After suffering a 2-0 midweek defeat to Rangers, Aberdeen were determined to gain all three points, but it was the visitors who got off to the better start.

Kilmarnock took the lead in the 28th minute through a Kris Boyd goal, in the match where Boyd was celebrating his 300th appearance for Kilmarnock.

Aberdeen began their comeback after halftime. First, Scott McKenna headed home from a corner, in the 49th minute to equalise.

McKenna then scored a goal of the season contender, as he powered his shot home from over 40 yards out.

Niall McGinn then sealed the win, with his first goal since returning to Aberdeen, scoring in the 72nd minute.

Twenty-one-year-old Chidiebere Nwakali made his debut for Aberdeen in the 85th minute, when he was substituted on for McGinn.
