Venue: Fir Park, Motherwell
The Dons were struggling all the first half at Fir Park and might have been further in arrears than 0-1 at the interval. After the turn around they were a changed side, equalised right away and for twenty minutes looked the part. Then the home side got two quick goals and the Dons gave in. The Motherwell direstors admitted that they were worried during the Dons' brief spell. But the dons failed to keep up the good work.
