Despite losing, this was an exciting day for Queen of the South because a new attendance record was set, improving on the previous high by about 3,000. The game was all too easy for the Dons, as they cruised to a 4-1 half-time lead, but Queens could claim victory in the second half when they scored two goals to Aberdeen's one, but it was all over by then.
