Hearts drop points, Well held

At Pittodrie, the Dons enjoyed the better of the chances against

a Hearts side that looked jaded after their midweek exertions

against Liverpool in the Europa League, although the Tynecastle men

remain unbeaten in the SPL this season.

Despite their pressure, the hosts were unable to find a way past

Hearts stopper Jamie MacDonald and were forced to settle for a

second successive goalless draw at home.

In Sunday’s other game in the Scottish top flight, Thomas

Reilly’s stoppage-time leveller handed St Mirren a 1-1 draw against

Motherwell at Fir Park.

Micheal Higdon took advantage of some poor defending by Lee Mair

and slotted beyond Craig Samson in the opening minute.

St Mirren pressed for an equaliser throughout the remainder of

the match, despite the late dismissal of Shaun Hutchinson, and in

the final minute they restored parity. Steven Thompson forced an

excellent save from Darren Randolph and substitute Reilly bundled

the ball into the net.
