Defensive Worries as Livi Earn Pittodrie Replay

A brilliant performance by 1st division Livingston denied the Dons a Scottish Cup victory this afternoon, and forced a Pittodrie replay a week on tuesday. Livingston came close to scoring on many occasions in a game which saw Aberdeen lose 3 of 4 defenders due to injury. Kevin McNaughton, Jamie McAllister and Derek Whyte all picked up injuries, the extent of which are not currently known.

Rachid Balabed was gifted the first real chance for the Dons in the 9th minute, when Darren Mackie's shot was saved, and Balabed came close to making it 1-0. Livingston's Alex Burns should have put the Almondvale side ahead just minutes later, but he missed from close in.

Derek Whyte picked up a booking for a rash challange on Alex Burns, and Livingston continued to cause the Don's defence problems. In the 35th minute Barry Wilson came close to giving the home side a shock lead. Aberdeen replaced McAllister and Whyte with Darren Young and Phil McGuire at half-time, and McNaughton was stretchered off in the 58th minute, and replaced with Derek Young.

David Rowson should have made it 1-0 in the 66th minute, but his header missed the target. Livingston came close a few more times before the final whistle, with Marvin Andrews coming close with a header that powered off the bar.
Aberdeen now have an even better chance of reaching the quarter-finals, with the replay being a week on tuesday at Pittodrie.
