Match Report

The fact that a replay was necessary came as no real surprise. After all this was the fourth draw in five meetings this term. A sprightly start by us saw us dominate the first quarter of an hour until Aberdeen exploded into action after winning a corner. From it, Charlie Nicholas met an Alex McLeish header which Billy Thomson acrobatically turned over the bar. From the ensuing corner another Alex McLeish header caused problems as John Hewitt crashed a shot against the bar and Willie Miller hammered the rebound against the outside of the post.

The remaining 70 minutes brought little other than a series of long range shots. Billy Thomson twice made good saves from Peter Nicholas and near the end only a flying diving save from a Willie Miller shot ensured us a second match.
