Derek McInnes enjoys Aberdeen performance

Aberdeen's Nicky Low
Nicky Low celebrates his second minute strike

Derek McInnes said Aberdeen were a joy to watch despite the lack of goals in their 1-0 win over Ross County.

Nicky Low gave the Dons a dream start with a second-minute free-kick, but the goal avalanche never arrived, though Scott Vernon did have an early penalty saved by Michael Fraser.

"It's probably as comfortable a 1-0 as you'll get," McInnes told BBC Scotland.

"I felt we were in total control of the match, I was really enjoying watching my team play today."

The Pittodrie men dominated the match from start to finish, with Vernon, Niall McGinn and Cammy Smith all having chances to increase the Dons lead.

In the end they had to settle for a single-goal win, and the three points lifts the club into third place ahead of Wednesday's trip to Tannadice.

McInnes said: "We've been wasteful of good opportunities when we've got into good areas in the first half especially, and we've been there before when we've missed penalties and it's come back to bite us.

"Thankfully it didn't today. It was a good save, a decently struck penalty from Scott Vernon.

"The quality of the goal from Nicky Low, the quality of our play, there was a real style about us today. A lot of real good play and a lot of really good performances.

"It was always going to be a tough match.

"We obviously wanted to get back to winning ways quickly after losing to Motherwell, and I think the two home games we've played - we've won one and lost one - in both games I've got to be pleased with the performance."
