OFK Kikinda 2 - 1 Aberdeen
Kick Off:  4:30 PM         Davidson 44.  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Gradski Stadion, Kikinda
This match in Yugoslaviav is notable as it gave Jim Leighton his first senior game in the Aberdeen fist XI thanks to an injury to Bobby Clark and reserve goalie John Gardiner not having a valid passport for the trip. The outward journey turned into a nightmare of cancelled and delayed flights meaning that the Dons only arrived in Kikinda at 10:00 a.m. having had no sleep, going straight to bed and then up again at 2:00 p.m. for the match.
