    BBC Scotland at Pittodrie

    "Aberdeen should in truth be further ahead with Church missing a glorious chance early in the second half and Rooney also going close. 'Sacked in the morning' is ringing around Pittodrie and whilst perhaps unlikely, Ronny Deila is now under some serious pressure. His side simply aren't doing enough here."
