First Team Debuts


McGhee fastens on to a long ball from Rougvie to stroke Dons ahead.

Richard Gough's low diving header from Milne levels. Eamonn Bannon's swerving fully 25 yards into the top comer is a joy to behold.

Billy Kirkwood with a free header scores a vital third. He and Aberdeen's Neale Cooper are booked.
