Partick Thistle 1 - 0 Aberdeen
Kick Off:    Nimmo 40        
Attendance: 7,000
Venue: Firhill, Glasgow
So Near
"Hard Luck" will not give the Dons those much needed points, but it must be said that Aberdeen didn't enjoy much fortune at Firhill last week, and you will never convince the Dons' supporters present that Norman Davidson's header didn't bounce down from the under-side of the cross-bar over the line. No one would have grudged the Dons a point.


It's wonderful how the members of the Glasgow Supporters' Club turn out to watch the Dons at practically all their away matches. No matter how the Dons are faring, you can hear these loyal friends cheering on their favourites.
