Motherwell 1 - 0 Aberdeen

HT Score: Motherwell 0 - 0 Aberdeen

Div 1 (Old)
Motherwell scorers: Quinn 52

18/03/1961 | KO: 15:00


The Dons lost at Motherwell. Judging by their recent form, some of the Dons' supporters looked for a heavy defeat and although disappointed at yet another reverse, tried to console themselves with the thought that there was only one goal in it - certainly small comfort!! In actual fact, both sides seemed to play without purpose!! A draw would have been a fair result, since neither side deserved to win!!

More Bite

What the Dons need is that urge that temporarily they seem to have mislaid! Undoubtedly they have the ability! but they must have more than that! let's have some more fire, more zest!! Victories come from speed, skill, stamina and spirit!
