St Mirren 2 - Aberdeen 1

The Dons couldn't make it 3 wins in a row and instead St Mirren managed to drag themselves off the bottom of the SPL table with a win at St Mirren Park. St Mirren were only off the bottom for 24 hours as Kilmarnock beat Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday and leaped over them in the SPL standings.

This wasn't the best result for Aberdeen and is not a good lead into our first dress rehearsal for the League Cup Semi-Final against Celtic on the 6th of November at Celtic Park.

Maybe the players were exhausted from playing 3 games in a week? Maybe it was just an off day. I really hope so, since it is important that we start to get a run of wins in the league.

Back to the match itself: Aberdeen never got started in the first half and was punished at a corner when our goalkeeper went for the ball and missed, this made it easy for McAusland (27th minute) to head it into the back of the net.

Thankfully, Aberdeen managed to pull it back to 1-1 after half-time when on the 67th minute Rory McArdle took advantage of a miscue by Aberdeen striker Chris Maguire and fired the ball home.

The rest of the game was played at a fair pace with chances for both sides to take the 3 points. However unlike Tuesday night it was St Mirren who stole the 3 points at the death. Travner skipped past Michael Paton and drilled the ball into the bottom corner of the net sending the St Mirren fans crazy and making sure they went home happy.

This was a sobering lesson to Aberdeen fans that they must keep their feet on the ground, it would appear that whenever we seem to get a really good result we always come crashing back down to earth with a bang. As going into the game on Saturday a lot of people were saying that we should easily beat St Mirren. :(

That is my summation of the match on Saturday. Next up is Glasgow Celtic at Celtic Park on Saturday. Kick off at 3pm.

COME ON YOU REDS!

  4. Honestly I can't believe St. Mirren beat Aberdeen. Aberdeen might be strengthened by this as a team, because this shows them they can't just rest on talent, but still this hurts points-wise.
