Aberdeen 0 - 0 Partick Thistle

HT Score: Aberdeen 0 - 0 Partick Thistle

Scottish Reserve League

02/09/1911 | KO: 15:30

Before about 2000 spectators Aberdeen A team met to try conclusions with the Partick Thistle A team. With the custodian unlike Greig, the home team were considered safe, and though he was called upon on several occasions to display his capabilities, he was always one too many for the rushing forwards of the visiting team. The game merited a win for the local team on the play, but the forward line seemed unable to convert when they got within shooting distance.

Aberdeen won the toss, and commenced play with the sun behind them. Hume, who was unable to accompany the first team to Hamilton on account of an injury to his foot, and was unable to stand the strain of a First League match, made his presence felt soon after the start when Partick had a go at the home citadel. Low also did good defending work, and he saved Greig many hard shots. The home team were from the start a likely combination, and the brothers Neilson were unfortunate in respect that, after repeated efforts from the wing, the centre failed to convert. The game was of a give-and-take description all the time. J. H. Neilson made his name as a pressing man, but failed to do anything definite. At half time there was no scoring, although on the run of play the thistle were perhaps the better team.

On resuming the homesters proved considerably more lively, but notwithstanding repeated combined efforts on behalf of the front five, they were unable to catch Hamilton off his guard, and the game ended in a goalless draw.
