League Cup Group 4 
Ayr United 1 - 1 Aberdeen
Kick Off:  3:00 PM   Price 65       Mulhall 18.  
Attendance: 4,000
Venue: Somerset Park, Ayr
Although we would have preffered a win at Somerset Park, the point picked up wasn't so bad when one considers the number of changes in the side. Aberdeen were the better side in the first half and looked like winners. However the home team kept battling on and deservedly got the equaliser. If the Dons are to be criticised, it would be that they appeared to "lose the place" for a time after the turn-round.
