Aberdeen recovered from a disastrous start to earn a draw in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Kilmarnock.
The Dons trailed 2-0 after 25 minutes at Rugby Park but goals from Niall McGinn and Connor McLennan ensured the Dons left Killie with a point for their efforts.
Dons boss Derek McInnes made two changes to the team which beat St Mirren 2-0 in the Scottish Cup on Saturday with Scott McKenna out due to his season-ending hamstring tear while Dean Campbell was suspended.
Mikey Devlin replaced McKenna in central defence while Connor McLennan returned to the starting line-up with Lewis Ferguson dropping back to partner Funso Ojo in central midfield.
Kilmarnock boss Alex Dyer made three changes from the side which lost to Celtic. Alan Power was suspended while Mohamed Al Makrini also dropped out with Dario Del Fabro dropping to the bench.
Rory McKenzie, Greg Kiltie and Chris Burke were the three replacements.
When these sides last met two weeks ago Aberdeen came out on top in a seven-goal thriller after extra-time and it seemed as if both sides were still in cup mode in their second meeting in a fortnight.
Niall McGinn fired over for the Dons before Joe Lewis saved from Rory McKenzie of Kilmarnock while Eamonn Brophy struck the post for the home side in a remarkable opening 10 minutes.
But it was Killie who got their noses in front and it was Brophy who opened the scoring from the penalty spot, firing home after Ash Taylor had been penalised for handball from a Rory McKenzie shot.
Killie quickly doubled their lead when Taylor failed to clear out a Stuart Findlay pass and the ball fell to Greg Kiltie who fired past Lewis to put the home side firmly in control.
Aberdeen were stung but they came back into the game towards the break and McGinn handed his side a lifeline when fired home a McLennan shot to half the deficit before the interval.
Aberdeen levelled five minutes into the second half as Matty Kennedy’s surging run took him past Stephen O’Donnell and his cross was inch perfect as he found McLennan who headed home the equaliser.
