Duncan Shearer's side came out strongly in the second half. The impressive left back Charles Taylor went on a superb run and after beating a number of the players he managed to get to the byline and from the cross Michael Rose was forced to make an excellent tackle. Inverness were then unlucky when Morrison saw his shot from the edge of the box come back off the post. The Dons had to play into the wind in the second half and they seemed to prefer this as it was a lot easier to pass the ball. O'Neill played a quite superb through ball for McManus to run onto but the striker wasted the opportunity when he went for power and the blasted it just over. The Dons were now on top and with a quarter of the game to go they got a deserved second goal. It was Nicky Low who this time played a great penetrating pass for Alan O'Sullivan. The Irish striker got one on with one with the last defender before turning him and placing the ball past Esson into the corner of the net. A very impressive finish from the big striker. With the game now looking safe the Dons then gifted the visitors a goal only a minute later. Rose played a risky pass back which Rogers made a mess of and Dachi Kutishvili nipped in to score. The game came to life in the last 15 minutes. The Dons had chances to score and Inverness pushed men forward. Stephen O'Neill tried to chip Esson which he almost succeeded in doing and Nicky Low was unlucky to see a fine individual effort clip the post. With the strong wind behind them Inverness were able to launch the ball into the box from anywhere on the pitch. Rogers and Rose both redeemed themselves though, the keeper had a superb save and also came and claimed a number of very good catches. Rose and Rumsby were both strong in the air and the Dons were able to hold out for a good three points. The win puts the Dons second in the table on goal difference over Dundee United and only a point behind Celtic who have two games in hand.
