Rangers as expected came out strongly at the start of the second half but again the Dons defence held firm. The back four did really well today. On the break Aberdeen continued to look dangerous with Rangers struggling to deal with Cammy Smith who had a very good game. On 52 minutes the Dons broke again and a good pass by Gibbons set Smith free. He still had a lot to do but beat his man before firing the ball low into the net. Another really good goal. That should have been that but on 58 minutes Rangers got themselves back into the game. A good move down the left put McAusland in and he finished well. Kyle had replaced Daly at half time. The goal gave Rangers a big lift and all of a sudden the match became very competitive again. On 65 minutes Paul Sheerin made a double change; Gibbons was replaced by Campanile and Felek was replaced by Ross. The coach then had to make another change on 70 minutes when the Dons keeper Robbie Mutch had to go off injured. He collided with the post after a challenge by a McAusland. Frustratingly the challenge did not even have to happen as the ball went out of play although to be fair both players were unaware of this and had to go for the ball. U17 keeper Reece Willison came off the bench to make his debut for the 20s. He is only 15 but to his credit he came out and claimed a great cross straight away which helped settle him down. On 75 minutes Craig Storie picked up the first yellow card of the game. Just before that, Aberdeen had enjoyed a better spell again and Smith went close. On 76 minutes Smith and Wright combined to create a chance for Shankland who looked to have poked it home but Kelly did well to get a hand on it. Then just when it looked like the young Dons had taken the sting out of the game Rangers were awarded a penalty after a foul by Shankland. Although Willison guessed the right way Dykes put it right in the corner- a good penalty. Both teams had chances in the closing stages, Smith put a shot just wide and Halkett put a header just wide. To their credit the young Dons really stood up to be counted in the final stages and showed a lot of character. They had to withstand about 7 minutes of injury time but they did this to claim the three points and remain unbeaten.
