Dunfermline 1 Aberdeen 1Saturday, 22nd Nov 1997
Billy Dodds (65) 0-1:
Stewart Petrie (81) 1-1
Bert Paton chose the same fourteen players for the third week in succession but preferred David Bingham to Gerry Britton in the starting line up.
Aberdeen looked the better team for long periods without really bothering keeper Ian Westwater too much. The Pars seem to lose their attacking threat with too many passes going astray.
Entertainment was poor but the result was the important thing. Billy DODDS goal was gift wrapped for him by Andy Tod to put the Dons ahead after 65 minutes. Dunfermline introduced all their subs and Stewart Petrie looked hungry
An Ivo Den Bieman free kick hit high into the penalty box from the right was nodded down and PETRIE gobbled up the chance from 18 yards.
