Aberdeen's Scottish Premiership season continued with a win at Fir Park against Motherwell on Saturday.

This two-one win was secured thanks to goals from McGinn and Taylor after Motherwell had taken an early lead to stun Aberdeen through Johnson, however McInnes' Dons came back to claim the points, which makes it the best start to a season since 1991!

With both sides having pacy wingers Motherwell's Ainsworth broke away to set up McDonald who saw him effort turned away by Liverpool loanee 'keeper Ward Johnson (5) was on hand to do the rest to make it one-nil to Well early on.

The Aberdeen equaliser surprised all with a curling McGinn (25) evading everyone and no one getting a touch as this went on off the post to beat Motherwell 'keeper Ripley to make it one-one, with Goodwillie having a chance to make it two-one to the Dons before the break but he couldn't take this chance.

Aberdeen did take the lead just past the hour though when another McGinn delivery, this time from a freekick, was headed home by Taylor (62) to see the Dons come from behind to lead.

McGinn would have sealed the win if the post hadn't denied him at the end of his run but two-one was enough to make it three out of three in the SPL for Aberdeen.
