We'll have highlights of the match on the BBC Sport website tomorrow. Thanks very much for joining us on tonight and for taking part with your texts and tweets. Time to wrap it up here. All the best.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"I thought Goodwillie and Rooney, the hold-up play was excellent. We're disappointed as a team. We should be taking more responsibility to score more goals, throughout the team. The majority of players had an opportunity to score tonight. We had them where we wanted them and we allowed them back into the game. We're a good side but we have to find ways to win. It should have been four wins in a row."

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"We had so many chances and we were so wasteful. There was loads to like about us but it counts for nothing if we don't win. We had enough know-how out on the pitch to see it out. The penalty was a clear hand ball. We gave the referee an easy decision to make. We have chucked away two points but you've got to credit St Mirren."

Neill in Irvine: "Not like Willie Miller to be scathing about St Mirren! Great point, come back is on!"

Buddie Des from South Wales: "Willie Miller describing our defending perfectly. Bad defence, poor wide players and no forwards makes for a long, long season."

Our reporter at Pittodrie, Jim Spence, is trying to get a word with Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes to hear his thoughts on the game.

Andy in Armagh: "This game is symptomatic of Aberdeen's sluggish start to the season. The Aberdeen side from last season would have kicked-on in the second half and won that game 3-0 or 4-0."

St Mirren manager Tommy Craig

"Maybe things are starting to turn for us. It's a massive point for us, psychologically."

St Mirren manager Tommy Craig

"Over the piece I've got to be pleased. They've shown they can come to a place like Pittodrie where Aberdeen are flying high. Maybe we are turning the corner. We thought we'd try to get as high up the pitch as we possibly can. The fact we created chances gives us belief."

Stevie in Ayr: "The Willie Miller seethe is glorious radio. Come on ye Saints."

BBC Scotland football pundit Willie Miller

"It's the first time I've seen St Mirren this season. I think they're going to struggle defensively. Their full backs are not tracking back. They had to push up in the second half and they gave Aberdeen opportunities. Aberdeen will be kicking themselves that they haven't taken three points. Mark Reynolds can't throw his hand up in the air like that - it was a stonewall penalty. There was a lot wrong with that St Mirren team but somehow they managed to get a point. That point could be very valuable to them at the end of the season."


Aberdeen 2-2 St Mirren

Aberdeen are desperately trying to get on the ball as St Mirren try to ease their way out of the match with a point.

There are four minutes of added time. Will we see a winner? Ash Taylor heads Barry Robson's corner over the St Mirren goal.

Aberdeen will be kicking themselves if they don't pick up three points here. A draw keeps them in sixth place, while a win lifts them above Celtic and into fourth spot.

BBC Scotland football pundit Willie Miller

"I thought if a red card came out I wouldn't have been surprised. He's got a great attitude, Willo Flood, but he has to take a little bit of steam out of that aggression."


Aberdeen midfielder Willo Flood can have few complaints as he is booked for a heavy challenge on Saints playmaker Kenny McLean.

Ross Caldwell comes on for Thomas Reilly as St Mirren push for an equaliser in the last 13 minutes.

Marian Kello saves a Shay Logan shot after the Dons defender had made a lengthy run to get involved in the attack.

Len Fyfe: "Looking like the Dons' weak spot this season is in defence, looks like we really miss Russell Anderson."

BBC Scotland commentator Rob Maclean

"Much though Aberdeen have dominated, they are living dangerously, in a sense, being only 2-1 ahead."

Dougie Kinnear: "Mark Reynolds should be playing for Scotland, not just a squad player! Consistent performer & clearly composed in either box! #bbcsportscot"

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on Sportsound

"Aberdeen look more likely to create an opportunity than St Mirren. I'd like to see Peter Pawlett get more shots off rather than take that extra touch."

Ivan Hamilton: "Big shout why Peter Pawlett is not in the national team, he been awesome this year."

Stretch: "I think I have proved my point from my previous message (20:09) with Reynolds scoring."
