Aberdeen Draw Level.The game was twenty-five minutes old when Aberdeen drew level. In the interval Airdrie had gone near to increasing their lead, Law finding the crossbar, after clever play by Preston and Bertram. It was a well-placed free kick by Falloon that enabled Aberdeen to call all square. The little centre-half planted the ball well forward, and Paterson charged by McLean dropped it. The Aberdeen forward, however, was persistent, and catching the ball on the bounce very cleverly hooked it into an untenanted goal. The second half was only a minute old when Aberdeen went ahead. On this occasion Warnock crossed a lovely ball, and Love taking it first time sent into the roof the net. The ball rebounded into play, but referee Bell had never any doubt about the legitimacy his award. For some time Aberdeen maintained strong pressure, and McLean's leading up work should have got them more goals. As it was, Aberdeen were not stretched to keep their lead, although they were not without their worries in front of Smith.
Airdrie's Late Equaliser.There were eight minutes left for play when against the run of the game, Airdrieonians, who fought pluckily throughout, drew level. The ball came from the right, and McDonald waiting his chance, easily scored with Smith out of his charge. Aberdeen were shaky in defence for but later Cooper, McGill and Falloon touched fine form. Best in attack were McLean, Love and Warnock. For the visitors Crapnell and McQueen were at their best, and had to be. Preston came out top amongst the halves, and of the forwards Law, Bertram, and Armstrong were easily best.
