What Happened

It was late in the season and it looked like we were on our way to the 1st division. We only had 2 home games left that season, along with a few tough away games so they only charged 1 to get in for those 2 games. Aberdeen scored just before half-time and were all over us for over an hour (bearing in mind that we needed at least 1 point). We got a penalty with about 2 minutes to go, Robbo buried it obviuosly then came close to winning it for us in injury time.

Other Comments

Wasn`t the best result or performance, but I recall half the stadium being non-existent due to reconstruction of the Wheatfield/Shed. Despite this they still managed to squeeze 13,000 into Tynie that night and the atmosphere was just unthinkable. It brought out a passion in the players as well, I can remember Tosh Mckinley running to the enclosure after we equalised and hugging everyone - almost in tears !
