Football - Brown laments poor defending

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown could not explain his side's poor defending in the 3-1 loss to St Johnstone.

A poor touch from Isaac Osbourne set up Gregory Tade for the opener and, although Niall McGinn levelled, Rowan Vine scored after Jamie Langfield failed to collect a corner, with two Aberdeen players unable to head to safety.

Callum Davidson then capitalised on some hesitancy before Steven MacLean cut back for Dave Mackay to net.

Brown said: "It was a poor performance. How we can go from being excellent at the weekend to playing poorly in the last period of the game was unaccountable.

"Each goal was a gift. The first goal we conceded was alarmingly softly but St Johnstone took their chances."

Meanwhile, Brown confirmed Aberdeen were hoping to sign Czech goalkeeper Dan Twardzik.
