Good Game
There were few disgruntled spectators at the Hibs match - and no wonder - for both sides put up a stirring display. Visiting officials were naturally elated but admitted they had many anxious moments especially in the second half. A general opinion described the encounter as a good game, worth a draw. The Dons got plenty of encouragement from the terracing and there is no fear but that such support will continue as long as the lads give ninety minutes of endeavour. Of course there must be criticism of their showing. Doubtless Mr Shaw will point out the sins of ommission and omission at his "get-together".
