Match Report

We recorded our third successive victory and for the second consecutive game knocked the League leaders off their perch. From the start we looked to be the side which carried the greater threat. In the twelfth minute, Ray McKinnon's through ball put Darren Jackson clear and Snelders did well to stop his low shot before Irvine intervened to mop up the danger from the loose ball as Duncan Ferguson closed in. Snelders dealt more comfortably with a 25 yarder from Darren Jackson four minutes later, but almost immediately afterwards Snelders was beaten. Jim McInally dispossessed Ten Caat some forty yards out and drove in on goal before striking a low 22 yarder past Snelders which went in via the inside of the far post. The home side may have had the lion's share of possession for the rest of the half, but for all that they failed to test Guido Van de Kamp other than with a series of cross balls. The Dons most fluent move of the first half came just before the interval when a cross from Mason on the right was bound for the head of Ten Caat until Dave Bowman nipped in to nod the ball to safety.

Although Aberdeen did step up the pace of their game in the second period, they still rarely threatened to score. Even when Ray McKinnon limped off shortly after the interval, the pattern didn't alter. Booth replaced Gillhaus and Van der Ark came on for Mason, but the only shots on target which Guido Van de Kamp had to deal with were long range shots from Van de Ven which he saved easily. There was a late flurry of activity in our box as Aberdeen tried to salvage a point, but by and large We were in control and left Pittodrie with spoils.
