Hearts   0 - 3   Aberdeen

Fraser Fyvie celebrates his first Aberdeen goal
Fyvie, at just 16, became the youngest scorer in SPL history

Fraser Fyvie scored Aberdeen's opener against Hearts to become, at 16 years and 10 months, the youngest player in Scottish Premier League history.

With Hearts looking for offside, the young midfielder latched on to a Mark Kerr through ball and tucked the ball under Marian Kello.

Mike Tumilty rejected Hearts' penalty claim when Michael Stewart was felled.

Darren Mackie nicked the ball past Kello in 50 minutes and Derek Young added a third from a free-kick.

Hearts went in to this mid-table match looking to extend their unbeaten SPL run to eight matches, their best sequence since George Burley led them to the top of the table more than four years ago.

Almost inevitably, the last time they enjoyed such a run Aberdeen were the side who beat them.

Teenagers Scott Robinson and Gordon Smith, the latter in for Christian Nade, were given the striking roles by Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo and their ability and enthusiasm was enough to keep the Dons defence on their toes.

However, it was another teenager who broke the deadlock in 12 minutes, shortly after Hearts' Marius Zaliukas had a weak effort at Jamie Langfield's goal.

Fyvie scored his first goal for Aberdeen when he picked up the pass from his captain Kerr and, as the visitors waited for the offside flag to be raised, ran in on goal and his low shot beat Kello.

These two sides have the worst disciplinary records in the SPL and the physical nature of the match was exemplified when Ismael Bouzid suffered a facial injury in a challenge with Mackie.

Hearts responded by winning more of the challenges in midfield but their opponents continued to threaten on the break.

The home fans were furious with referee Tumilty when their skipper Stewart went down in the box under a challenge by Jerel Ifil but was denied a penalty. Instead, Tumilty brought the play back to an earlier infringement by Ricky Foster on Robinson.

Laszlo's side had the best defence in the SPL at kick-off but that was made more fragile by the departure through injury of Lee Wallace.

The Dons went two ahead thanks to striker Mackie, who nicked the ball past Kello in the 50th minute.

And Mackie should have made it three when he connected with a Foster cross from a crisp counter-attack but saw his shot saved by Kello.

A crucial challenge from Ifil prevented Zaliukas getting his shot away in the 55th minute before an Aberdeen breakaway almost killed the contest, Kerr's shot going just wide.

Hearts threw on David Witteveen for Smith, and Rocky Visconte for Ruben Palazuelos.

With 20 minutes left, Charlie Mulgrew was needlessly booked for chopping down Robinson on the touchline.

Mulgrew was quickly withdrawn for Zander Diamond, the injury-plagued defender's first appearance since the opening day of the season.

To manager Mark McGhee's delight, Young fired in a hopeful long-range free-kick, which every player left to his team-mate, and the ball rolled beyond Kello to end the game as a contest.


Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo:

"Ruben had a kick against his knee. Tomorrow he must have a scan. Lee Wallace had an old injury. Now Ian Black with his back.

"To lose in one game three goals at home and to lose four players. We don't have a big squad; just young guys.

"I don't see any problem to come back from 1-0 but after five minutes of the second half we lose the second goal. It's very disappointing."

Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee:
"What a good goal, what a finish (from Fraser Fyvie). He had one earlier in the season when he might have gone through and scored and he didn't score.

"That's why he's in the team, because he's got all these ingredients. We've had moments in games but I think it's the most emphatic performance.

"Hopefully, we can maintain that now - that's the challenge."
