PATONLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH
One down from a second minute Eoin Jess goal, the Pars could have been four down by half time had the Dons taken their chances. Jess and Hignett were denied by Lee Butler and the crossbar too took a rattling. Aberdeen had the better of the first half but went in just one up.
Half time: Aberdeen 1 Dunfermline 0
Marc Millar came on for the second half with Andy Tod dropping back into defence. This did give Dunfermline a stronger midfield and the fans enjoyed the pressure put on the Aberdeen goal right in front of them at the beach end.
Jamie SQUIRES latched on to a long throw and drove home a good goal But within two minutes (while Dunfermline played with 10 men while Templeman was replacing the injured Petrie,) JESS turned the defence and drove low passed Butler’s left to restore the Dons advantage.
Butler and Shields have to receive credits for their efforts but two men don’t make a football team.
