Call to Red Army to back the Dons

Evening Express (City Final) - - Your Voice -

PIT­TO­DRIE chiefs were rightly dis­ap­pointed at the ticket up­take from fans for the Bet­fred Cup semi-fi­nal against Rangers.

Around 11,000 Dons fans made the trip to Ham­p­den for the clash with Rangers which the Reds won 1-0 to set up a fi­nal date with Celtic in a few weeks’ time. Rob Wicks is right to point out there were mit­i­gat­ing fac­tors for the semi-fi­nal turnout but the club is con­fi­dent fans will turn up in num­bers for the Ham­p­den show­piece.

This time there has been no palaver over the kick-off time and venue, and the re­sponse from the Red Army in snap­ping up more than 13,000 tick­ets in the first few hours is fan­tas­tic.

Derek Mcinnes and his play­ers will be hop­ing as many Aberdeen fans as pos­si­ble turn up on Sun­day De­cem­ber 2, and there is no doubt with Celtic re­turn­ing to form their sup­port will be needed.

Who knows, if you don’t go and get be­hind the team, you might miss out on his­tory be­ing made.
