Cup Blow For Dons

The young Dons must still be kicking themselves over their exit from the Reserve League (up when, despite having 80% of the pressure, they went down by a 1-0 margin to Hearts in a semi-final tie at Pittodrie.
Dean Windass and David Rowson each passed up clear-cut scoring chances in the first half, but it was the visitors who led at the inter¬val having taken advantage of a defensive lapse by the home side.
Aberdeen introduced all three of their substitutes in a bid to res¬cue the game in the second half, but, although they continued to have the better of the midfield exchanges, they could not alter the scoreline, and had to endure a repeat of the result when Hearts visited Pittodrie in the Premier Reserve League early in the season.
