A disappointing performance from the Dons which leaves them firmly anchored at the foot of the Bells Premier League table. The only goal of the game came, ironically, from ex-Don Paul Wright who scored in the 27th minute.

It was not until late in the match that the visitors showed any fight and with ten minutes remaining, Billy Dodds produced a tremendous save from Lecovic with a well struck volley that probably deserved more of a return.
