Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
DONS IN CLOVER!
Aberdeen should field strong side at Kirk iiidiine from the trial at Pittodrie.

Gage, the Fulham 'keeper, was the star for Probables. One of his saves from Frank Dunlop was worth a tanner itself.
Howe, Tottenham Hotspurs'" international inside-left, was outstanding in the Possibles attack and Hunter (Morton) was a thoughtful leader with two grand goals.
Fred Taylor (Burnley) at inside-right, showed he has fully recovered from his broken nose injury. He was very tricky and always eflective. Aden (London Casuals) teamed up well with Willie Cooper.
Wood, an English amateur, shone at right-back for Probables, and Fairbairn (Fulham) was a grand pivot.
In Probables attack were two Aberdeen juniors, Christie and Hay. Both showed fine promise.
In the first half Christie scored twice for Probables. Hunter followed with two to square at the interval. Howe put Probables ahead from a penalty and Hay equalised. Downie (1.T.C.) scored the winner.
