With the Old Firm duo not in action until Sunday, Aberdeen consolidated third place with a 1-0 home win over struggling Dundee United.
Steve Tosh celebrated the birth of his second child with a spectacular 26th-minute winner to move Aberdeen within six points of leaders Celtic and
pile more pressure on Dundee United manager Ian McCall. The Dons are now only three league points away from equalling last season's total as the Jimmy
Calderwood revolution continues apace.
A brilliant strike by striker Derek Riordan gave Hibernian a 2-1 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle and denied Craig Brewster a point in his first
game as manager. Juanjo gave Brewster and Caley the perfect start in the 34th minute but Guillaume Beuzelin equalised five minutes later before
Riordan sealed the win two minutes after the break.
Motherwell moved into fifth place with a 2-1 win over 10-man Dunfermline at Fir Park. The home side had taken a first half lead thanks to a
26th-minute own goal by Andy Tod. The visitors' woes were compounded moments later when defender Aaron Labonte was shown a red card for an
off-the-ball incident with Well striker David Clarkson. After the break Fir Park striker Richie Foran stretched the Steelmen's lead with a 63rd-minute
close-range header before Tod redeemed himself a little by grabbing a goal back two minutes later.
Managerless Livingston defied all the odds when they romped to a battling 3-1 win over Kilmarnock. A Jim Hamilton double and a superb strike from new
skipper Burton O'Brien was enough to secure the win and end a run of seven defeats. Allan Johnston had pulled a goal back to level the scores but his
strike proved to be nothing more than a consolation for Killie.
