Result: St Mirren denied first win by Aberdeen

Aberdeen score an 85th-minute equaliser to rescue a 1-1 draw against St Mirren, denying the hosts their first win of the season.

St Mirren have been denied their first win of the season by an 85th-minute Aberdeen equaliser that made it 1-1 in their Scottish Premiership encounter.

The hosts enjoyed the first chance of the match just before the half-hour mark when John McGinn shot from the edge of the box, but Jamie Langfield was equal to the effort.

St Mirren did take the lead 10 minutes after the restart, however, as Steven Thompson bundled the ball past Langfield from close range after being found by Paul McGowan's pass.

Christopher Dilo then kept his side ahead with a fine save from a Jonathan Hayes free kick from 25 yards out.

Aberdeen almost gifted a second goal to the hosts with a little over 15 minutes remaining when a defensive error allowed Conor Newton to tee up Kenny McLean, but his shot whistled past the post.

The visitors had a chance to equalise in the 84th minute when another defensive lapse allowed Niall McGinn in, but his effort came back off the post.

They did manage to find the equaliser just five minutes from time, however, as Peter Pawlett ended a goalmouth scramble with a half volley to make it 1-1 and rescue a point for Aberdeen.
