Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
Dons and Well Share Pittodre Spoils
In an extremely disappointing match at Pittodrie, the Dons and Motherwell fought out a drab 1-1 draw in which Eoin JESS gave the home side the lead with a tremendous drive after only seven minutes.

The visitors deservedly levelled in the thirty-fourth minute when Owen COYLE took advantage of a mistake by Andy Dow to prod the ball past Jim Leighton.

The second half was a slight improvement in terms of the pace it was played at but in the end the Steelmen were far happier with the outcome and the home support made their displeasure known by booing their team off at the end.
