Not a classic encounter by any means as this frantic meeting produced few moments of goalmouth excitement. Aberdeen could perhaps claim the greater share of the minimal chances, Ian Angus struck the top of the crossbar and a deflected cross from substitute John dark hit a United post. As was to be expected in view of the final scoreline most of the top performers were in defence where Richard Gough, who was booked for a foul on Angus, was perhaps the outstanding player in Tangerine. Willie Miller, Aberdeen's most accomplished player, was named "Mr Superfit" by the sponsors.
