Saints 1-1 Aberdeen

Last updated : 03 March 2009 By Stuart Gillespie
After Saturday, I'd have been delighted with a draw. However, this feels like a defeat. If we'd won, we'd have moved well clear of the bottom two as Falkirk lost and Inverness Caley Thistle aren't likely to do anything against Rangers tomorrow.

Once again we have lost a late goal. They've cost us wins against Dundee United, Falkirk and now Aberdeen in the last few weeks. On the plus side, one did get us a point at Tynecastle a few weeks ago - but I'd far rather have lost that and won the other games.

I wasn't there tonight - a decision I took after we beat Motherwell in the cup, not after Saturday's disaster. As a result, I can't really say much about the game. Judging by the radio commentary it was a pretty even game, with Chris Smith - who kept his place in the side - good at times and making errors at others.

Both sides had decent chances but poor finishing or good keeping kept it goalless until 12 minutes from time, when Billy Mehmet's cross was mizzed by Zander Diamond had finished it off. David Barron nearly added a second before, at the end of the final minute of stoppage time, Sone Aluko swung the ball in for Wright to head into the top corner.

It's heartbreaking and frustrating. Let's just hope it doesn't have a bad mental affect on us in the long run.
