McDonald saves Dons

06 February 2010 06:30
A dramatic leveller from Gary McDonald five minutes into injury time spared Aberdeen yet another cup shock as they drew 1-1 with Raith. A brilliant first-half volley from Rovers midfielder Iain Williamson looked to have won the Active Nation Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at Stark's Park. The First Division outfit, winners of the League Cup in 1994, appeared set to become the fifth Scottish Football League side to defeat the Dons in the last four seasons. But just when Raith were ready to celebrate a batting success on the tricky surface, McDonald popped up to force a Pittodrie replay. Sone Aluko's ball into the danger area saw Charlie Mulgrew swing a leg at it to wrong-foot the home defence and McDonald knocked in from close-range.
