Aberdeen Continue Unbeaten Run With Win

Last updated : 15 January 2011 By Stand Free Ed

ABERDEEN continued their superb run of form with a 2-0 victory over St Mirren at Pittodrie today.

New signing Rob Milsom started his first game for the Reds only two days after signing from Fulham, and despite the redhead looking rusty he displayed admirable willingness and filled in well for missing captain Paul Hartley.

The first-half saw the Dons dominate and have by far the better chances, but despite openings for Ryan Jack, Scott Vernon and new boy Milsom they couldn't breach St Mirren's defence.

But after only five minutes of the second-half, a tactical switch from manager Craig Brown paid dividends.

Chris Maguire, who was switched to wide in the midfield instead of the central attacking role he played in the first-half, brilliantly set up Vernon to score.

The Dons didn't take their foot off the gas after scoring, and it was no surprise that they doubled their lead with a near-identical goal after 67 minutes; good work from Maguire again setting up Vernon to score his 12th goal of the season.

The only disappointments will be David McNamee's first-half injury that saw him substituted, and a poor crowd of only 9740 considering the team's great run of form, but overall this was another excellent afternoon's work for the new Aberdeen management team and their rejuvinated charges.
