What a difference a week can make. The depression following Rangers 4-0 win at Tannadice was partially lifted by the midweek signing of Scott Crabbe and what better place could we visit to complete the rehabilitation than Pittodrie, our favourite ground. Pre-match odds of 3-1 against a United victory looked generous , but as the match entered its final phase a draw seemed inevitable until Duncan Ferguson popped up with a last minute winner via the head of Aberdeen defender Gary Smith. Scott Crabbe made his United debut as the Tangerines got off to a good start as Snelders made saves from Billy McKinlay and John dark. John dark cleared a Mixu Paatelainen header off the line and early in the second half Jim Mclnally almost kept up his excellent scoring record against the Dons, but Snelders parried his net-bound shot.
At the other end, Alan Main made fine saves from Winnie and Mixu Paatelainen. Scott Crabbe had a quiet, but promising debut before he was replaced by Paddy Connolly. In a late flourish, we forced a series of corners and from the last of these, Duncan Ferguson sent in the header which Smith helped into the net. So a week which had begun in sombre mood ended in buoyant fashion as we chalked up our fourth consecutive Pittodrie win. Even more amazingly, this was the fifth consecutive match in which Aberdeen had failed to find the net against us!
