Jess and Wallace Goals in One All Draw
Aberdeen picked up a point against the league leaders, after a hard fought match at Pittodrie. The Dons took the lead after only 4 minutes when EOIN JESS's deflected free kick hit the back of the net.

Aberdeen came close to increasing their lead, and Rowson and Jess came close, but they couldn't break down the Rangers defence. As the game went on, Rangers came more and more into the game, and earned an equaliser after 79 minutes when Rod Wallace struck home.

Overall, a good result, but Aberdeen dissapointed not to take all three points.
