Craig Brown: Says Aberdeen were deserving winners

The Dons won this fourth round replay 2-1 at Fir Park, with Rory Fallon and Joe Shaughnessy netting for the visitors early in the second half, before Michael Higdon fired a last-gasp consolation from the penalty spot.

Manager Brown said: "We've now managed to turn it round against Motherwell. That's four games and it's two wins and two draws for us.

"Between the first and the second goal we had three really good chances and their goalkeeper Darren Randolph had two saves which were world class.

"We handled the situation exceptionally well, particularly the young boys out there. I thought they were superb.

"It was a big blow to us when we lost Russell Anderson on Monday. To come here without Russell and to get a victory against Motherwell is very good.

"I rate Motherwell highly. I rate Stuart McCall and I think they have a superb team."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
