two penalties beat reserves

Two second half penalties gave the Hi-bees second string the points in a disappointing game for Neil Cooper's team in which the main positives were the fact that both Markus Heikkinen, who played alongside Andrew Considine at the back, and Fernando Pasquinelli came through the ninety minutes unscathed.

After a first period that contained nothing of note, Dobbie put the home side ahead from the penalty spot after Ryan Esson, who was yellow carded for his troubles, had brought down Weightman inside the area. That looked to be the sole goal action but deep into stoppage time Hibs were awarded another penalty with McDonald this time converting.

Both sides finished the match a player down with the home team's Noble the first to go for his second bookable offence in the 66th minute. Eight minutes from the end, Fergus Tiernan followed him, again for a second yellow card. In a game that was played in fine spirit, the referee also managed to find excuses to flash yellow cards at Pasquinelli and Scott Morrison.
Manager Neil Cooper described Aberdeen's performance as 'flat' with only Heikkinen and Considine earning pass marks.
