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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
