Four-star Queens book~cup final spot

Date published: Saturday 12th April 2008 2:32

Dons defender Andrew Considine’s header cancelled out Steve Tosh’s opener in a relatively tame first half, but the game exploded in a 12-minute spell after the break.

Twice Queen of the South forced themselves ahead through Paul Burns and Sean O’Connor, Aberdeen equalising each time through Barry Nicholson and Considine again.

There was barely time to draw breath before Stewart, on for Stephen Dobbie just before the break, latched on to a header from skipper Jimmy Thomson and drove home from 10 yards out to take the Doonhamers into their first Scottish Cup final.

The Dons threw everything forward in search of an equaliser but Gordon Chisholm’s men held on to reach the May 24 showpiece.
