After rallying from behind to defeat furious Aberdeen with 10 men, St Mirren extended their unbeaten home record in the Scottish Premiership to nine games.
Before their captain Anthony Stewart was dismissed and Mark O’Hara’s ensuing penalty went in off goalkeeper Kelle Roos, Matty Kennedy had given Aberdeen the lead with a wonderful goal.
As Aberdeen struggled, O’Hara converted his team’s second penalty. However, they gave away a third penalty in stoppage time, which allowed Greg Kiltie to move Roos up the field in pursuit of a thrilling equalizer.
St. Mirren’s Jonah Ayunga also saw a third penalty attempt saved, but in the end it didn’t matter because Stephen Robinson’s team kept up their impressive home record—they had last lost in Paisley on the first day of the season.
While Aberdeen made a valiant effort to get an equalizer at the very end, they were dealt their third straight loss since the game started, and they only have themselves to blame for the manner they allowed the game to get away from them.
