Match Report


Jim McLean made three changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Hibs at the weekend. Billy Kirkwood, Iain Phiilip and Ralph Milne came in for Ian Britton, Maurice Malpas and Graeme Payne. Davie Dodds had been a doubt, but kept his place in the starting line-up.

Mark McGhee fastened onto a long ball from Doug Rougvie to stroke Dons ahead.

Richard Gough's low diving header from Milne levelled. Eamonn Bannon's swerving fully 25 yards into the top corner is a joy to behold.

Billy Kirkwood with a free header scores a vital third. He and Aberdeen's Neale Cooper are booked.
