The Gers recorded another important away win at Pittodrie today – but it came at a serious cost with player of the Season so far Stevie Naismith being stretchered off with a suspected cruciate knee injury in the first half.
It was his replacement Kyle Lafferty who broke the deadlock in the 58th minute with a great strike (Gordon Gibson wins this weeks Golden Goal and has committed to buy the beer at next weeks game if his wife lets him go). The 2nd was scored by Nikica Jelavic from the penalty spot and looked like plain sailing for the Champions from there. However, Alan McGregor made an unusual mistake with 9 minutes to go allowing the Dons to get back into the match.
Aberdeen couldn’t get a second so The Champions now sit 12 points clear at the top of the SPL with the rest of this weekends fixtures still to be played.
Next game for The Champions is next Saturday at home to Dundee United. As the clocks will change tonight, the match will kick-off at 7pm local time here in Dubai and will be shown live in Centre Circle.
