Sam Cosgrove rescued a point for nine-man Aberdeen as they came from behind to earn a share of the spoils in 1-1 draw with Hibernian at Pittodrie.
Cosgrove’ s header earned the Dons a draw in game which saw Curtis Main and Lewis Ferguson sent off.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes made four changes to the side which lost 5-0 to Rangers at Ibrox last weekend.
There were two changes in central defence with Scott McKenna and Andy Considine returning while Curtis Main and Ethan Ross were also handed starting places.
Mikey Devlin, Zak Vyner, Connor McLennan and Niall McGinn were the players whol dropped to the bench.
The Dons made a slow start at Pittodrie but the visitors could not take advantage with Christian Doidge seeing his early shot saved by Joe Lewis.
The Aberdeen captain also saved a long range free kick from Stevie Mallan in what was a bright opening from the home side.
The Dons gradually got into the game with Lewis Ferguson firing straight at Chris Maxwell while Curtis Main’s low driven ball across the six yard box found no takers.
Hibs opened the scoring at the start of the second half.
Tom James fired in a low shot from the edge of the box which was blocked but Aberdeen failed to clear their lines and Ryan Porteous was on hand to fire past Lewis.
Aberdeen needed to respond quickly but their task became even tougher when Curtis Main was sent off.
The striker was deemed to have made a dangerous tackle on Hibs midfielder Mallan, prompting Don Robertson to brandish the red card.
Hibs had chances to put the game beyond the Dons through Doidge but the striker was defied twice by Lewis while the home side responded with a Ryan Hedges effort which struck the post.
Aberdeen did make Hibs pay for those missed chances five minutes from time when Sam Cosgrove equalised with a bullet header from Niall McGinn’s corner.
The Dons pushed for a winner but their desire got the better of Ferguson and he too received a straight red card for a wild challenge on Mallan.
