In normal circumstances, dropping a point at home would be regarded as a point lost. Circumstances however were far from normal. How could they be as we faced up to an Aberdeen side, almost back to full strength, without Maurice Malpas, Paul Hegarty, Eamonn Bannon and Paul Sturrock. The outcome of a goal-less draw belied what was an excellent match. Both sides had chances with Billy Thomson defying Bett's long range effort with a tremendous save, the post coming to Billy's rescue when a Davie Dodds flick beat him and earlier John Hewitt should have scored when he took advantage of John Clark's misplaced pass back.
At the other end there were strong appeals for a penalty when Jim Mclnally was apparently brought down in the box and the same player jinked his way into a shooting position in the second half only to see his shot hit the side netting. The point maintained our improved set of results at home to the Dons, extending it to five games without defeat.
