Livi Dump Dons out of Cup Again
Aberdeen are out of the Tennents Scottish Cup after a woeful display in front of a crowd of just under ten thousand at Pittodrie in their 4th round replay with first division leaders Livingston.

The decisive goal in a match which the visitors thoroughly deserved to win came with seven minutes left when a corner was headed home by substitute Scott CRABBE.

The defeat means the Dons miss out on a money spinning tie with Peterhead and the chance of a bumper semi-final pay day at Hampden. However, it would have been a traversty if the SPL side had won this match as not one of the players on show played anything like the levels they are capable of.

Aberdeen Teamsheet:  Esson, Rowson, McGuire, Solberg (Lilley 36), McAllister, Young (Clark 85), Guntveit, Dow (Young 67), Stavrum, Winters, Belabed.

Unused Subs: Peat, O'Donoghue.
