Dons Thumped By Hearts

Aberdeen missed the chance to get off the bottom of the SPL, going down 3-0 to Hearts. Some poor defending from the Dons contributed to the result, the first goal coming after just 10 minutes. Jamie McAlister and ex-Scotland international Jim Leighton got in a mix up, and Colin Cameron latched on to the loose ball to place it in the net.

Gary Wales and Stephane Adam ran the show for Hearts, and the team were dealt a blow when Finish international goalkeeper Antti Niemi was stretchered off. Wales fine work paid off when he scored a good goal in the 47th minute.

The Dons seemed to lose any hope of getting back in the game by now, and the game was effectively over when Stevie Fulton made it 3-0 in the final two minutes of the game.
