Next Story

St Mirren and Aberdeen both ended their recent goal droughts but neither could get back to winning ways as they shared a 1-1 draw in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

Nigel Hasselbaink gave St Mirren a 57th-minute lead that brought to an end a run of four SPL games without a goal, but the home side were pegged back almost immediately as Scott Vernon netted Aberdeen's first league strike in three matches.

The result is St Mirren's fourth consecutive league draw and Aberdeen's third.
