Niall McGinn Secures Draw For Dons

Niall McGinn secured a second-half equaliser for the Dons to come away from McDiarmid Park with a draw, the third of the campaign so far.

A lacklustre first half from Aberdeen saw us go behind thanks to Saint’s David McMillan heading home directly from a corner after poor marking inside the area to put St Johnstone ahead in the 14th minute.

Thankfully the second half was much livelier and Niall McGinn levelled the score in the 69th minute from a superb free kick.

The winger lifted a 19-yard effort over the defensive wall and beyond Clark into the top corner.
