Jamie Murphy puts the visitors ahead in the 80th minute but the Dons snatched a 1-1 draw and a replay thanks to Niall McGinn's injury-time effort.

McCall said: "It's the second time we've been up here and lost a goal in the last minute, but if you'd said to me after three or four minutes that we'd get a draw, I'd have taken it right then.

"The first five or 10 minutes were an onslaught, and how we survived it I don't know. There was a bit of good goalkeeping, some good fortune, and some good defending.

"As much as Aberdeen have injuries, they still put out a very strong and experienced side, and we had two of our own young lads at centre-back - Fraser

Kerr and Adam Cummins got stronger as the game went on.

"We grew into the game, and I thought second half we were more prominent. It was a terrific goal from Jamie, and the lads are a bit gutted in the dressing room, but we're still in the hat and overall I think it was a fair result."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
