Baird In FormThe Dons must be thankful that Archie Baird was in form. The big inaide forward got both goals, and was unfortunate not to register his hat-trick. In the second period he played at left-half owing to Taylor receiving a shoulder injury. Both at inside forward and in the middle division he was the outstanding player afield. Another pleasing feature s far as Aberdeen were concerned was the greatly improved form of A. A. Kiddie at outside-right. Some of this boy's touches were a delight to watch. He and Bremner made a happy partnership. Bremner may not be so fast as of yore but he knows how to get the best out of his wing man. Johnstone, following a long absence, was confident in goal. Cowie found Walker troublesome at the start, but mastered the internationalist in the second period. McKenna had no superior at back. Dunlop dominated the centre of the field. Green was a tireless worker, and Taylor good and consistent as ever until injured. Williams was always on alert at centre but too individualistic at times. McCall played better when at inside-left.
