Youngsters see red in cup defeat

Last updated : 25 January 2011 By Stuart Gillespie

The game was due to be played last year but was postponed numerous times due to the weather. It looked as if more time would be needed to decide the tie as there had been no goals going into the final minute. However, Joe Shaughnessy stabbed the ball home to give Aberdeen the win.

This seemed to prompt a bit of bedlam as in the time remaining both Ryan Frances and Jamie McKernon managed to get themselves sent off. A rather spectacular ending and sadly Aberdeen's youngsters seem rather better than our first team at winning cup games against nine men!
