Sofia so good for Dons in Euro campaign

After the credible draw in Bulgaria Aberdeen attracted their biggest Euro crowd to date as 29,000 crammed Pittodrie. The crowd were rewarded after only seven minutes when Robb steered a Forrest pass past the keeper to settle the home side. Six minutes before the break Taylor took advantage of a defensive slip and hit a screamer into the net to give the Dons a 2-0 interval lead. The Dons could have added more after the interval but the crowd went home happy anyway with a second round spot secured. The draw was not to be favourable as Aberdeen were to face Spanish opposition for the first time.
