Match Report

A bit different form the last contest which United won 5-0 as Aberdeen exacted revenge. Despite there not being much in it in terms of possession, Aberdeen could have won by a greater margin, striking the woodwork on two occasions.

More pertinently Windass netted a square ball from Jess sandwiched between those near misses to take the points. Apart from a good save by Leighton close to half-time and a near scrambled equaliser right at the death, we rarely threatened.
