Half time Aberdeen 1 Kilmarnock 0Aberdeen brought Toby Wells on after the interval, Danny Harvie remaining in the dressing room. Four minutes after the break it was 2-0 as Nicky Maynard rifled a shot into the net via the underside of the crossbar after Mark Reynolds had turned a Frank Ross free kick into his path. Two minutes later Cammy Bell produced a superb save to deny Seb Ross whose header from a fine Ryan Harrington cross seemed destined for the back of the net. Paul Sheerin made a second change on 55 minutes, Chris Antoniazzi replacing Miko Virtanen. Kilmarnock broke forward and Brophy fired a dangerous cross into the box but David Craddock was coolness personified as he grabbed the ball ahead of the inrushing Samizadeh. Brophy broke clear on the hour mark but Craddock stood strong to keep him out. Dean Campbell was booked for a challenge on Mouanda but most onlookers felt it was a 50/50 challenge with both players determined to win the ball. Samizadeh quickly followed Dean into the book for simulation. A dreadful passback by Brophy almost played Maynard in for a second goal but he was blocked out before he could get a shot away. Dicker was replaced by Scally on 67 minutes as the visitors tried to shuffle the pack in a bid to get into the game. Brophy tried his luck from distance but his shot flew narrowly wide as the game went into its final twenty minutes. Andy Millen threw on Cameron for Samizadeh with 14 minutes left but it was Aberdeen still very much in the ascendancy as a dazzling run by Seb Ross almost created a third goal for the home side, Bell doing well to turn the midfielder?s shot wide of the target. The final change from the Dons saw Bruce Anderson take over from Connor McLennan with five minutes of the ninety left and the sub was quickly into the action playing Maynard in but the striker dragged his shot wide of the right hand post. Bruce himself had the next shot on goal firing wide after good work from Seb Ross as the Dons looked for a third. That third goal didn?t come but it was another sound, workmanlike victory for Aberdeen who are building some real momentum.
