MATCH REPORT Ross County 1-3 Aberdeen

Ross County slipped to a home defeat to Aberdeen ahead of the International break. After taking an early lead the Staggies went in level at the break before conceding twice in the second half to see the Dons take the points back to Pittodrie.


County started in spritely fashion and on 5 minutes Lewis Ferguson handled inside the box to hand the Staggies and early penalty. Josh Mullin stepped up and sent Joe Lewis the wrong way, as his penalty went in the bottom left hand corner with Lewis diving to the right.


5 minutes later and the Dons would be back on level terms. Niall McGinn stepped up at a freekick from 20 yards and tucked the effort in to the top right-hand corner past Laidlaw.


Both teams would try to make inroads to taking the lead as the half wore on however nobody would manage to capitalise.


Aberdeen took a 2-1 lead 7 minutes in to the second half. Ryan Hedges took a left footed freekick on the right hand side of the box. The ball floated over the players and sailed beyond Laidlaw across the goal and in to the left hand side of the Jailend net.


On 67 minutes Ross Stewart had an equalising goal disallowed. He was at the back post as Ewan Henderson floated in freekick. Stewart managed to tuck it beyond Lewis but the linesman adjudged Stewart to be offside calling back the goal.


3 minutes later and Aberdeen would notch their 3rd. A scramble in the Ross County box saw the ball fall to the feet of Andrew Considine who from 18 yards rifled an effort in to the top left hand corner giving Laidlaw no hope and sending the Aberdeen fans in to ecstasy.


As the game drew to a close the Staggies desperately looked for a pathway back in to the match but couldn’t produce a goal to give life back to the match. The result keeps the Staggies in 6th place going in to the latest International Break.
