The Dons fought out an entertaining ten goal thriller at a fogbound Allan Park for Cove Rangers stalwart Martin Johnston in a match that saw former Don Steve Tosh make a second half appearance.

Rangers took the lead in 7 minutes through STOTT before Scott McKENNA levelled in 23 with a shot following a Calvin Orsi corner. SCULLY restored the home side's lead but with five minutes to go before the break, it was level when trialist FELEK pounced on a cut back.

Midway through the second period a Declan McMANUS penalty saw the Dons in front for the first time only for LENNOX to level immediately. A spectacular ORSI effort was then followed by a TAYLOR equaliser as the goals continued to come thick and fast and with seven minutes to go! sub Marcus CAMPANILE looked to have won it for the Dons with a great shot after a corner was only half cleared. However, three minutes later a mix up between Michael Rose and Craig Burns resulted in PORTEUS pouncing to complete the scoring in what was an entertaining encounter.
