Aberdeen may have finished the game with nine men, but they still managed to hold on for a point against Hibs, splitting fans’ opinion on the game.

Hibs had multiple chances to kill the game off, with Christian Doidge unable to beat Joe Lewis in the Dons net.

In the final minutes of the game though Sam Cosgrove scored yet again to salvage a point, whilst Lewis Ferguson was red carded before the final whistle.

Some Aberdeen fans have reacted to the result.

Two ways of looking at Aberdeen’s draw

There will be two thought processes for Aberdeen fans in the wake of their Hibs draw. First of all, the positive outlook.

Even though they played the second half with ten men for the most part and then nine, the Dons still managed a point. Derek McInnes’ side showed enough dig to grind out a point.

From another perspective though, it could be seen as two points dropped. Hibs are on a bad run of form right now, failing to win a league game since the opening day.

There was a lack of discipline in the Dons side too, with two red cards and 12 fouls given away throughout the match (BBC). Attacking intent  from Aberdeen wasn’t there either, managing just two shots on target.

Aberdeen go into the international break four points behind Motherwell in third. Their next match is a trip to Fir Park, a game McInnes can’t afford to lose.
