HT Score: Aberdeen 0 - 1 Dundee United

Dundee United scorers: Dodds 36, Miller 53, Dodds 56 Olaffson 54

17/04/1999 | KO: 15:00

Dundee Utd defeated Aberdeen by 4 goals to nil, with two ex-Dons men grabbing goals. The first half was a close affair, with neither side really getting in front. However it was the away side who scored the opening goal when ex-Dons hitman Billy Dodds scored against Pittodrie debutant Tony Warner.

The second half began with United on the attack, and it didn't take long for the visitors to score. With 53 minutes gone, Joe Miller scored against his old club to make it 2-0 to Dundee United. 2 minutes later it was 3-0 to United when Kjell Olaffson struck. 1 minute later it was 4-0 when Billy Dodds scored his second, and United's fourth of the game.

Aberdeen's misery was made worse when Nigel Pepper was sent off, 19 seconds after coming on. It was the players second sending off of the season.

The defeat keeps the Dons in the relegation zone, and means that victories in the coming weeks are vital.
