Considine: Dons opener

Aberdeen left it late to beat St Mirren 2-0 at Pittodrie to climb up to fourth spot in the SPL.

Goals from Andrew Considine and Sone Aluko in the last 10 minutes were enough to give Jimmy Calderwood's men the points.

Aberdeen dominated proceedings from the first whistle, but struggled to break down a resolute St Mirren rearguard.

The home side finally grabbed the breakthrough 10 minutes from time when Considine converted Mark Kerr's cross for his first goal of the season.

Aberdeen made the game safe a minute from time after Aluko outpaced Jack Ross and fired his shot past Mark Howard.

The defeat leaves St Mirren sitting in 11th spot nervously looking over their shoulders.
