Dons squeeze through in cup

It took a last minute goal to put Aberdeen through to the next round of the Aberdeenshire cup as Huntly pushed them all the way at Christie Park. Steven Craig did his first team chances no harm by grabbing both goals in the match.

Huntly took the lead in the 57th minute after Dons keeper Esson blocked a cross from the right but Richie TAYLOR managed to knock the ball home. Huntly had much of the possession and looked the more likely to score a second but Aberdeen continued to defend well and managed to keep them out

The equaliser came in the 86th minute when Steven CRAIG got on the end of an Andrew Considine cross. Aberdeen continued to press and got the winner in injury time (91st minute) when CRAIG headed in from a Scott Morrison free kick.
Neil Cooper spoke to RedWeb after the game:

"We defended well and Ryan (Esson) didn't have that much to do but we lacked that quality final ball and didn't pass well. We lost a sloppy goal and were quite lucky not to go down by more. It didn't look like we were going to get anything from the game but all credit to the players they kept on playing right until the referee blow the whistle and we got the result."
