Paul Hegarty's honeymoon period as caretaker manager of Aberdeen Football Club came to an abrupt end in Perth when the Dons were soundly beaten by fourth placed St. Johnstone. Jamie Buchan gave the visitors the lead in 25 minutes before Saints levelled on the stroke of half-time when Gary Bollan scored from the spot after John Inglis had needlessly pushed Darren Dods in the box.

The second half was 'all Saints' with Alan Kernaghan and John O'Neil (2) finding the net.
