Another dull and dissapointing affair led to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dundee.With very little chances for either side in the first half, it took 30 minutes for the first real chance of the match. It took even longer for the first goal of the match to occur, and it was the visitors who took the lead. A good move from Dundee led to ex-Rangers player Steven Boyack making it 1-0 after 40 minutes.As the sides went in at half-time, the Aberdeen support were hopeful that the Dons could turn on the style in the second half.

However, it wasn't to be. The second half continued in the same vain as the first, with neither team really showing the will to win. As the game progressed, it looked as if the game was going to finish 1-0. However, Dundee increased their lead with 5 minutes remaining. On-form Iain Anderson struck for the Dens Park men, as he continued his good form, in a bid to win a transfer to the English Premiership.
The Dons did manage to score a consolation goal when Jess set up Robbie Winters to score once again for the Dons.

It was another dissapointing result for Paul Hegarty with none of the players really showing that they are worth a first team place.
