Half Time: Aberdeen 1-0 DundeeAfter another spell of freak weather, the game restarted with a faster, slicker pitch. Aberdeen were slow to get going after the break and allowed Dundee to take the initiative. The visitors were then right back in the game after 53 minutes when a loose square pass from Christie in the middle of the pitch allowed Roarie Deacon a chance to run at Considine. He created a yard of space for himself to fire the ball through the legs of Joe Lewis. It was sloppy from The Dons, who had failed to kick on after the opening goal. Gary Mackay Steven came off for Greg Stewart almost straight after the equaliser. Aberdeen were so nearly behind moments later when Deacon chipped a square ball for Scott Allan who was unmarked at the back post. Thankfully he pulled his shot wide when he should have scored. You could not have argued had Dundee gone ahead at that stage. The Dons changed their shape after 66 minutes, with Derek McInnes throwing on an extra striker. Greg Tansey came off for Nicky Maynard. Very little was coming off for Aberdeen as they couldn't find a way through Dundee's defence and they were struggling to get a foothold in the midfield. Slowly though they came back into the game. Stewart was drifting off his wing to try and make something happen. With quarter of an hour to go Maynard was unlucky not to grab his first goal in a red shirt when he was played in by Stewart after a fine run in behind the defence. It was a 50:50 between the striker and the goalkeeper with Bain managing to grab hold of the ball. Brave goalkeeping from Scott who took a sore on. The slick surface just took the ball away from the Aberdeen striker. A minute later El Bakhtaoui had a shooting chance which went harmlessly wide. Then Haber down the Dundee right beat the offside trap. He had aches of room and time but his cross was too strong. Both Haber and El Bakhtaoui went down injured after that move. As both players had to leave the field they were temporarily down to nine men. With a two man advantage, Aberdeen pounced. After 80 minutes Shinnie and Christie tried to manufacture something on the edge of the box after Maynard could not connect with a header. Shinnie saw his shot well blocked but when the ball broke to Stevie May he lashed a first time thunderbolt from the edge of the area past Bain. What a hit. Dundee only had nine men but they had opportunities to stop the game so they could then have got their two subs on. It was so nearly game over two minutes later when Christie produced a lovely turn and crept into box but he slid just wide of the post. Ryan by his own admission did not have the greatest of game this afternoon but he never hid away. He kept looking to make things happen. Adam Rooney made his return to the side with goal hero May making way. A standing ovation for the new number 83. Dundee continued to make it nervous for the Dons winning corners late in the game, and putting over some dangerous crosses. A mixture of last ditch defending and route one clearances kept the score at 2-1. On the break Greg Stewart did well to beat the last defender but Scott Bain produced a brilliant one handed save to keep out his former team mate. It did not matter though as Aberdeen saw out the four minutes of added time to record another victory. They can take confidence from winning a game that was not going their way for large spells.
