After a run of 12 consecutive wins without the loss of any goals Aberdeen found Easter Road was no happy hunting ground. A 64th minute cross cum shot by Pat Stanton sneaked in at the far post and broke Bobby Clark's proud unbeaten record. Four minutes later, Hibs captain Baker headed in the second and the Dons looke a beaten side. Davie Robb raised the visitors hopes with a goal six minutes from time and although this signalled an all out Dons onslaught Hibs just held on to gain a crucial league win.
