CIS Cup exit at Pittodrie
Report of match Aberdeen 3 Motherwell 1 played 6th November 2002
When you are on a bad run, you don't get the breaks you need to win games. Yet again we played some pretty football but squandered chances and defended like amatuers. Aberdeen progressed to the quarter finals of the League Cup with a 3-1 at Pittodrie.
Derek Adams watches his free kick fly into the net
Derek Adams has been our free kick taker this year and he opened his account with a breath-taking effort which curled in off the post at the top corner. He miraculously escaped a booking for his celebration which involved running half the length of the pitch and jumping onto the perimeter wall in front of the 'Well fans.
Stevie knocks out the opposition!
As for the defence, goodness knows what Terry Butcher can do. He needs to find something soon though, otherwise our downward spiral will only continue.
