Aberdeen suffered a crushing collapse deep into injury time as they went down 2-1 at St Mirren, leaving Neil Warnock without a league win in 6 attempts.

The result leaves Aberdeen 10th in the table, just four points above the relegation play-off spot.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino was in attendance and he was treated to an opening goal of the highest quality from Connor Barron. Some excellent work by Duk on the right saw the ball break to the Dons midfielder, who unleashed a stunning effort beyond Zach Hemming with just a minute played. 

Stephen Robinson threw caution to the wind in the second period, opting to play with 4 forwards for much of the half in Connor McMenamin, Jonah Ayunga, Mikael Mandron and Toyosi Olusanya – the latter of which would prove to be crucial in both goals.

Dons boss Warnock looked to have his first league win secured until the 96th minute when Nicky Devlin’s foul on Olusanya prompted a five minute VAR check which resulted in Nick Walsh pointing to the spot. Substitute Mark O’Hara converted and the point looked to have been salvaged.

The Saints weren’t content with the draw however and less than a minute later Olusanya turned the ball home to conclude the most dramatic of endings.
