Points For Aberdeen 'A'

In their return Scottish Alliance game at Peebles, Aberdeen A defeated Peebles Rovers by 4 goals to 2. Aberdeen were early dangerous, and following a corner, McHale had a shot stopped by Paterson. At the other end Grieve, when well placed, shot over. Combined play by the Aberdeen attack resulted in Smith missing poorly. Subsequently a fine centre by Hanlon was cleared by Muir, and a minute later a good shot by Spalding was hit over the bar by Blackwell. The resultant kick was saved by Blackwell, but McLeod gave away a free kick, off which Brown opened the homesters' account with a header. Immediately after the restart Aberdeen attacked for Miller to equalise. Before the interval Paterson had to save twice in rapid succession from McFarlane. On the resumption Aberdeen were quickly at the homesters goal, where Miller put the Pittodrie second string on the lead. Following this the Rovers were awarded a penalty, and Hanlon again levelled the scores. Aberdeen again took up the thread of attack, and following a free kick by Davidson McFarlane added a third goal. The visitors continued to press, and were ultimately rewarded when McFarlane put them further ahead. At the other end Blackwell had to save a fine shot from Hanlon. There was no further scoring.
