Tynecastle Tickets

HEARTS are to issue another 400 tickets to Dons fans ahead of Saturday's visit to Tynecastle.

The Dons have been part of some great games in recent years against the team that are on paper their closest challengers for third place at the start of the season.

Two seasons ago, the Dons were unbeaten in their Gorgie games with Stevie Lovell firing the goal in a 1-0 win and Barry Nicholson dramatically sliding in to score a last-minute equaliser and all but seal European football for the Dons.

Last season Hearts got their revenge with a 4-1 Remembrance Day pumping, but there was no second Tynecastle fixture due to Hearts finishing in the Bottom Six (no sniggering at the back).

With less than 200 briefs remaining at the Pittodrie Ticket Office, Hearts will sell the extra tickets direct to Aberdeen supporters for the away section of the Roseburn Stand, priced at £21 for adults and £14 for concessions (under-18s, students with a full time photo matriculation card, and over-65s).

MEANWHILE, Aberdeen's youngsters have been drawn against Falkirk in the next round of the Scottish Youth Cup.

The game is a repeat of the Dons U19s last youth league outing on Saturday, which saw the Dons run out 3-1 winners at Stirling University with Gilli Sorensen, Mitchell Megginson and Gary Carroll on the scoresheet.

Rising Dons superstar Fraser Fyvie was not involved after his match-winning heroics for the Scotland U16s on Friday, but will hopefully return for the cup tie.

The cup tie is at the Falkirk Stadium on Sunday 9th November with a 2pm kick-off.
