A Capital Show By Reserves

Happily the Reserve eleven acquitted themselves far more favourably in a 3-2 victory over Hearts at Pittodrie. Scottish Under-21 international striker Paul Wright topped and tailed the display by netting an early penalty and then grabbing the decider four minutes from the end. Wright's first goal levelled it at 1-1 then a superb strike by Andy McLeod put Dons in front. Hearts managed to square it at 2-2, despite some fine goalkeeping by Steve Beckett, before Wright performed his match-winning act.

The third team were held to a 2-2 draw at Stirling (after leading 2-0 through a Robert McRobb penalty a goal by Jess) and then 1-1 at St Johnstone.
