Aberdeen   2 - 1   St Mirren

Scottish Cup highlights - Aberdeen 2-1 St Mirren

Scottish Cup highlights - Aberdeen 2-1 St Mirren

Aberdeen won their Scottish Cup replay against St Mirren to set up a semi-final meeting with Celtic.

Chris Maguire was credited with the Dons' fourth-minute opener, the goal resulting from a six-yard box scramble.

Scott Vernon converted Sone Aluko's cross to double Aberdeen's advantage right on half-time.

Nikola Vujadinovic's own goal three minutes from the end gave St Mirren hope but the home side managed to see out their victory.

Celtic won their rearranged quarter-final tie at Inverness, meaning a repeat of the Co-operative Insurance Cup semi-final, which saw Aberdeen lose 4-1 to the Glasgow side.

Craig Brown's side were on top from the start and almost went ahead when Maguire's low driven ball was turned against the bar by the sliding Aluko.

But the home fans did not have to wait long for a breakthrough as Paul Hartley's corner was flicked on by Zander Diamond and Maguire bundled the ball over the line.

St Mirren threatened a leveller when Paul McGowan's cross was cleared by Diamond as far as Steven Thomson, who sliced his shot wide.

Hartley limped off on 27 minutes to be replaced by Derek Young before Buddies goalkeeper Paul Gallacher clawed away Maguire's strike, the forward having turned well to get into a shooting position.

Kenny McLean came on for Jure Travner but the St Mirren substitute was not long on the park by the time Aberdeen had moved into a two-goal lead.

Aluko and Steven Smith combined well on the left and the former crossed for Vernon to prod home.

A head knock brought Thomson's match to an end and Jim Goodwin was sent on from the visiting bench. just after the break.

Aberdeen thought they had scored a third when Vernon outjumped Gallacher to head the ball into the net but a foul was awarded in favour of the goalkeeper.

Gallacher got the better of the pair's next joust, saving well from the striker's effort.

Vujadinovic took the place of Aluko in the 86th minute and with his first touch the defender threw St Mirren a lifeline.

The defender headed Darren McGregor's cross past Jamie Langfield.

But St Mirren could not find the second goal that would have forced extra time, allowing Aberdeen to progress.
