Football - Reynolds bemoans tight league

Aberdeen defender Mark Reynolds believes the Clydesdale Bank Premier League has become so tight this season that fixtures can now almost be described as "six-pointers".

The Dons host St Johnstone looking to get back on track following three successive SPL defeats, which has left them seventh in the table, albeit only a point behind fifth-placed Saints.

Reynolds, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, stressed the importance a victory or two can make to league positions as clubs battle for top-six and European placings.

"St Johnstone are certainly one of the form teams, they are up there on merit," the 25-year-old told RED TV.

"They are getting good results and playing good football.

"There's a lot of teams going well in the league and the top six or seven teams are very tight so these games are becoming almost six-pointers.

"Three results catapult you up the league and as you've seen with us, we were one game away from going top of the league and now we are sitting mid-table.

"Losing a couple of games on the spin is costing you big time so I think we need to change that, get the three points and a win gets us right back into the mix."
