Time in Kazakhstan Almaty

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes plans to keep players on UK time in Kazakhstan to stay in sync with Premiership start

The Dons boss has been plotting for the possibility of the brutal 9000-mile round trip to Kazakhstan to face Kairat Almaty since the draw threw up the potential clash nine days ago.

And the best advice he’s had from his sports scientists is to forget trying to adjust his squad’s body clock’s twice inside 72 hours if he wants them to be fit enough to face Dundee United three days later.

Despite his thrill at another Euro adventure, McInnes insists he’s giving both games equal respect – and the only way he can do that is to make sure he doesn’t put all his eggs in one basket on a charter plane that will take them all the way east of Iran and Afghanistan.

“It’s five hours ahead, which is fairly significant, so we have to manage that the right way.

“We will stay on our own time, fly late on Tuesday night and sleep when we should be sleeping. We should get to the hotel at 2pm their time, get a sleep and then train at night.

“So anyone who can’t sleep on a plane – and I’m one of them – will be able to get some rest before we train. After that we’ll just nip away at bits and pieces of sleep in the build-up to the game.

“It’s something we really had to think about because we didn’t want to have two full days out there then come back for United and try to switch back.

“I don’t know if anyone has done it like this before but we took advice from the physio and sports science guys. We all agree this is the best way to do it, although no way is it going to be perfect.

“We just believe this is the best chance of getting there with enough rest and being able to get back on to UK time for the Sunday game. We need to make sure we take both games into account. We should get back from Kazakhstan at 4am so the players will get a good rest on the Friday.

“The aim is that by the time they come back in on the Saturday they’ll be rested up and ready to play 24 hours later.”

McInnes is clearly conscious of getting the league campaign off to a flier.

Despite their title challenge going all the way to May last term, the slowest of starts is still fresh in his memory, a 3-0 home defeat to United on opening day hurting hard on the back of six European games in a month before it and the exertions of a 3-2 defeat to Real Sociedad only 72 hours earlier.

He wants no repeat this time and said: “Everything is on the European game first of all but we want to get our league season off to a good start as well.

“We can’t have one eye on Dundee United next Thursday, but as a coaching staff we have to have one eye on that game in terms of our preparation.

“We want the freshest team possible for that match when it comes round. I didn’t pick the freshest team for that game last season and have learned from that.”
