Simon Church scored his second goal for Aberdeen in their 1-1 draw with St. Johnstone on Saturday.

The striker, who found the net on his debut for the Dons at the start of the month, put his side ahead with a close-range finish in the first half but a late Liam Craig penalty meant Aberdeen had to settle for a point.

Saturday’s result sees Church and co fall six points adrift of leaders Celtic, although they do remain 20 points clear in the UEFA Europa League qualification places. The Dons travel to bottom-of-the-table Dundee United on Wednesday evening.
