Match Preview

Mawene bothered by blip Youl Mawene admits Aberdeen's slide to the bottom of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League has become "cause for concern". The Dons slipped into the basement spot last week with a 2-0 defeat at Kilmarnock which owed as much to their lapses as the hosts' supremacy. The Pittodrie men aim to get back to winning ways at home to St Mirren on Saturday but the French defender, 32, admits he is worried. He told RedWeb: "It has been a difficult week. I am not going to lie. It was a very disappointing result on Saturday. "We have been trying to pick ourselves up for what is another crucial game. "I keep saying that but as we are at home we have to be pumped up and ready. "We looked at the game against Kilmarnock on the video and again it was a bit of a similar tale - dominating without really any cutting edge, then giving away two easy goals. "That has been us. It is cause for concern. I am looking at how I can help improve the situation and turn things around. "We are looking at getting a clean sheet. From there sneak a goal and then take it from there. "If we can just get a result from somewhere I believe the confidence and belief will come back. "We have a big week coming up with three important games but I am personally just looking at St Mirren. "We need to concentrate on that game. We are at home and we are looking to take maximum points from that. Then we can then worry about the other games." Craig Brown hopes to have a full squad at his disposal. Striker Mohamed Chalali (groin) is his biggest doubt but Kari Arnason (hamstring) and Ryan Jack (toe) should feature. Strike pair Scott Vernon and Rory Fallon have also improved their fitness after playing through knocks last weekend. St Mirren striker Steven Thompson is determined to ensure their losing run does not extend to three games after defeats by Celtic and Inverness saw them slip out of the top six of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. Thompson said: "We're looking for a reaction. I suppose everyone thought we would get a reaction after the Celtic game, having lost 5-0. "The Inverness game was just a very bad day for us. We didn't do the things we normally do, we didn't play well. "Hopefully come Saturday we can get back on track because we don't want to get detached from the top six. That's our aim and we want to keep as close as we can to it. "It's such a tight league, two wins in a row you can be fired up into the top six, two losses in a row you can be dragged into the relegation area. We need to bounce back, that's the main thing for us. "Back-to-back defeats is poor, especially one at home, and this is now a really big game for us. "We all realise that, we have been working hard this week and have done a lot of talking on how we want to approach the game. And we want to come away from Aberdeen with a victory." Saints have an unchanged squad with Hugh Murray still short of match fitness after recovering from knee surgery.

Match Report

Carey earns point for Buddies A wonderful strike from Graham Carey gave St Mirren a share of the spoils against 10-man Aberdeen in a pulsating 2-2 draw at Pittodrie. The Dons looked set to ease to their fourth victory of the season after taking an early 2-0 lead when Scott Vernon netted after only 40 seconds and Rory Fallon's diving header doubled their advantage after 17 minutes. However, Kenny McLean latched onto a Steven Thompson header to pull a goal back 10 minutes before the break and Graham Carey's wonderful 35-yard free-kick after 52 minutes earned the Buddies a point. Fraser Fyvie appeared to have scored a late winner for the Dons when his cross was fumbled into the net by Craig Samson, but the goal was ruled out for offside and the midfielder was shown a straight red for dissent following the decision. Aberdeen boss Craig Brown, who took charge exactly a year ago, made two changes from last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Kilmarnock with Icelandic international Kari Arnason and youngster Ryan Jack returning from injury to replace Chris Clark and Rory McArdle. St Mirren, again without injured midfielder Steven Thomson, also shuffled their pack after the 2-1 loss to Inverness Caledonian Thistle saw them drop out of the top six. Irishman Carey was preferred to Nigel Hasselbaink, while David van Zanten and David Barron replaced Illias Haddad and former Don Lee Mair. St Mirren had only won twice on their travels this season and made the worst possible start by going behind after 40 seconds. Arnason's long throw into the box was flicked on by New Zealand international Fallon to Vernon, who chested the ball down before expertly drilling it into the top corner. The Dons doubled their advantage after 17 minutes when Fyvie was given too much time and space on the edge of the area to pick out Fallon at the back post, who stooped to head the ball home from only three yards out. St Mirren pulled a goal back 10 minutes before the break when McLean raced onto a Thompson header and calmly slotted the ball past Jason Brown for his third goal of the season. The youngster had a chance to equalise minutes later when he was played in by Paul McGowan, but Jack managed to make a vital block. The Dons had an appeal for a penalty waved away as the half drew to a close when Vernon fell under pressure from Barron. The hosts made a positive start to the second half with Vernon heading wide from a Rob Milsom cross before they had a second penalty appeal turned down when Barron challenged Fallon in the area. The visitors then equalised in spectacular fashion after 52 minutes when Carey unleashed an unstoppable free-kick from 35 yards which crashed into the net off the underside of the crossbar with Brown rooted to the spot. And the visitors should have taken the lead after 61 minutes when Carey's corner found the unmarked Thompson who could only direct his header wide. Carey had another chance from a set-piece on the edge of the area after Milsom upended van Zanten, but Brown was equal to the winger's low drive. At the other end, Vernon was guilty of passing up a golden opportunity when he headed over from a curling Milsom delivery. Brown produced a magnificent save to deny Thompson as the Buddies ended the game strongly. But it was Aberdeen who had a goal chalked off in injury time when Samson fumbled the ball into the net from a Fyvie cross. The midfielder was then shown a red card for dissent following the controversial decision. end M
