Craig Brown feels Aberdeen deserved to beat Hearts

Brown's Aberdeen missed the chance to move above Kilmarnock on goal difference

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown felt his side were unlucky not to take all three points from their goalless Scottish Premier League match with Hearts.

The Dons created the best opportunities in a match played in windy conditions.

Striker Rory Fallon headed wide from close range in the game's best chance before Rob Milsom failed to find the target in the closing minute.

"We had one or two good chances. We missed them but that has been the story of the season," said Brown.

The experienced manager refused to be too critical of his players despite their failure to pick up a fifth home win in the SPL.

He said: "We have a goalkeeper who has not had a save to make in the entire match and was not threatened in any way.

"I'm proud of the players' efforts but the quality required when it came to finishing off chances was not there tonight.

"I can't complain as, when your team gives 100% as they are doing, you have to accept that they don't always win."

And the Aberdeen manager felt the dreadful weather had a major impact on proceedings.

He added: "I think Barcelona would have had difficulty playing in conditions like that.

"If you are looking for a football spectacle, there was no chance of getting one.

"However, we did get endeavour and commitment from the two teams and a definite attempt to play football."
