Niall McGinn secured a second-half equaliser for the Dons to come away from McDiarmid Park with a draw, the third of the campaign so far.
A lacklustre first half from Aberdeen saw us go behind thanks to Saint’s David McMillan heading home directly from a corner after poor marking inside the area to put St Johnstone ahead in the 14th minute.
Thankfully the second half was much livelier and Niall McGinn levelled the score in the 69th minute from a superb free kick.
The winger lifted a 19-yard effort over the defensive wall and beyond Clark into the top corner.
Derek McInnes said after the match, “The reaction from the players in the second half was terrific.
“We lost a poor goal at a set play and St Johnstone were the better team in the first half, they were a bit more aggressive in the final third. We brought on Sam [Cosgrove], who was very effective for us, and the draw was no more than we deserved.
“It’s always a better point when you come from behind but if the game lasts a bit longer we maybe just find enough to get that second goal.
“Gary Mackay-Steven had a really good run at the end. It’s debatable whether it’s a penalty or not, at the time I thought that it was. Scott McKenna got better as the game went on and in the second half he was very influential for us at the back.”
