An experienced Aberdeen side went down to a youthful Inverness team at Glebe Park. Tommy Wright pulled on a Dons shirt for the first time and lasted 80 minutes as he tried to impress the onlooking manager. It was Tommy's first game for three months and he did well to last as long as he did. Ex-Aberdeen striker Rory McAllister, who impressed throughout, gave Inverness the lead after 19 minutes with a stunning finish, although the Aberdeen defence should have done better.
Aberdeen drew level with a Darren Mackie strike after 27 minutes. Darren picked up a long through ball and finished well. There was no further scoring in the first half although Mackie missed a good opportunity to grab his second. Inverness retook the lead through Garry Wood after 55 minutes. Again the striker, who was a handful throughout finished well, though the defence could have done better.
The Dons pushed for an equaliser in the later stages of the game. Duff blasted over after a fine move and Derek Young come very close. His free kick in the dying seconds produced an excellent save from Ryan Esson.
