The team’s present to new chairman Dickie was a thoroughly deserved three points. More importantly, it seems we have now learned how to play the game when we go ahead. There was no loss of composure and no lack of concentration.
The opening few minutes saw action at both ends of the park.
For the rest of the half we managed to put together a few passing moves but there was plenty of effort and determination in the way we fought off the
Dair replaced Clarkson at half time but the early flow remained unchanged.
On the hour Craig sneaked in between the Dons' central defenders and found himself in a race with the keeper - he needed treatment after the collision. We were more than holding our own and soon were rewarded with our first corner.
Pearson then showed why he is the centre of so much interest. He produced several of his trademark charges in the opposition half and two of them produced goals.
With fifteen minutes remaining he picked up a loose ball, ran twenty yards, past a couple of defenders, into the box and fired a peach into the net off of Preece's left hand post. The game was won and the Dons looked a beaten side. We commanded the rest of the game but there was more to come.
As the few hundred 'Well fans urged the referee to blow the final whistle Pearo came up with another run up the left wing and his cut back found Lasley twenty yards out. Keith's strong shot was on target and found the back of the net. Three nil for the Mighty 'Well!
Terry said after the game, “I didn't expect to come up here and win three nil, but the crucial difference was the confidence we had compared to them.”.
Roll on next Saturday.
