Reserves Are On Right Lines

At Easter Road, where thoughts of a reserve double were starting to take early shape, it was an even first-half for a 0-0 interval scoreline. Ten minutes into the second-half Selbie's centre hit the post and bounced out to where Wright was waiting to nip in and net the rebound for a 1-0 lead.
Later a superb through pass put Wright clear with a chance of scoring his second when ex-Don Tommy Mclntyre brought him down in the box and Wright made it 2-0 from the spot. Dons had lost John Hewitt because of injury just before half-time and McLeod took his place while Gary Hackett was replaced by Lee Gardner.
Team changes from Saturday to Monday were in Willie Falconer tak┬Čing over from Watson in the heart of the defence, Selbie taking over from Harvie, who injured his knee two days earlier, and Hackett and Hewitt coming in for Gardner and McArthur. With the third team having hit the top of the Reserve League (East) all the signs are that the squad are doing their stuff at all levels.
