GEORGE HAMILTON is streaking away from Harry Yorston in the race to be Aberdeen's leading scorer. Yorston has himself to blame for lagging behind, for he has missed golden opportunities in the last two home matches against East Fife in the LEague and Falkirk i the Dewar Shield.
Hamilton, on the other hand, has scored four times in these two games. He had a hat-trick in the first leg of the Dewar Shield tie against the Bairns, and the Dons go to Falkirk this week leading by four goals to two.
