Aberdeen claimed all three points with a hard fought 2-1 victory at Livingston.
Goals from James Wilson and a Steven Lawson own goal gave the Dons the win with Ryan Hardie pulling a goal back for the home side in the final minute.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes made two enforced changes for the trip to Livingston with midfielder Lewis Ferguson missing out due to suspension while Niall McGinn was absent due to the groin injury suffered in the Boxing Day defeat by Celtic.
Bruce Anderson and Scott Wright were their replacements.
Livi have earned themselves a reputation of being difficult to beat and it was easy to see why in a competitive and feisty encounter at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
The Dons started brightly with Stevie May having a couple of chances but Joe Lewis was the only goalkeeper called into action as he made a terrific save to deny Craig Halkett from opening the scoring with a glancing header from a free kick.
The Dons regained the initiative in the second half and May went close with a volley from Connor McLennan’s cross as they pushed for an opener.
Aberdeen kept the pressure on the home side, however, and their strong play was rewarded when James Wilson broke the deadlock 20 minutes from time when he diverted a Gleeson shot past Liam Kelly.
The Dons doubled their lead five minutes from time when Livi substitute Steven Lawson diverted a Wilson cross into his own net.
The home side pulled a goal back in the final minute through Ryan Hardie but the Dons dug deep to secure the points.
