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.
