Late Rally Saved Young Dons

UP to five minutes from the finish, East Fife "A" looked easy winners against Aberdeen "A" at Pittodrie.

They deservedly led by two goals scored by McLellan, their centre forward. They were undoubtedly the better team.
Then came a great closing rally by the Young Dons. With four minutes to go Kiddie converted a penalty, and in the last minute Vannet equalised with a header.
The homesters were a trifle lucky to share the spoils.
They were not an impressive combination.
Their weakness lay in attack, where there was a lack of cohesion and understanding. The defence was sound, with McKeown the better back.
Finlay was strong in the middle division, but the forwards did not knit together. Occasionally Kiddie flashed into prominence.
A powerful lot, the Fifers were stubborn in defence, and carried punch and cleverness in attack.
