The Dons were caught napping for the second week in a row with Gary McSwegan ghosting in behind the defence to lash the ball low past Warner from 10 yards. The goal spurred the Dons into action and Jamie Buchan netted the equaliser when he sent a screamer past McKenzie from 20 yards. The remaining thirty minutes of the half were a tight competitive affair, with Mayer and Winters going close for the Dons and McSwegan coming close to adding a second.

The second half started in identical fashion when McSwegan grabbed his second goal of the game with the Dons defence once again nowhere to be seen and worse was to follow with McSwegan grabbing his hat-trick two minutes later. In the 50th minute the visitors were awarded a penalty and Colin Cameron made no mistake from the spot. Eoin Jess pulled one back on the hour mark with a low drive from the edge of the six yard box but any hopes of a comeback were ended when Thomas Flogel added Hearts' fifth to end a miserable season for the Dons.
