  1. Spicy Saturday

    That's all folks. Thanks for your company tonight, but join us again tomorrow for a full fixture list of games in the Scottish Professional Football League, including four in the top flight.

    Celtic will be looking to re-establish that six-point gap at the top when they host St Johnstone, while Dundee United have a must-win game at home to Kilmarnock if the Tannadice side are to retain a realistic chance of lifting themselves off the bottom of the table this season.

  2. Dundee manager Paul Hartley on BBC Radio Scotland

    "When you come here, you've got to defend as a unit and I thought we did well.

    "Aberdeen know they have been in a game tonight.

    "We move on to Tuesday night, when we have a massive but tough game ahead of us against Falkirk in the Scottish Cup."

  3. Celtic showdown

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes says he is hoping to add to his squad before they face Celtic in 11 days time.

    He says his side will go into that game with plenty of confidence having beaten the reigning champions earlier in the season.

  4. Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland

    "It could have been easier and we made our life more difficult for ourselves.

    "Their keeper, like he has in the past, has made some good saves and we missed some opportunities.

    "I enjoyed watching my team tonight, they showed the same determination as last week and they deserved the victory.

    "In the second half, we were more controlled and got the ball in behind and that made it more easy for ourselves."

  5. Post update

    We'll bring you the manager's reactions in a mo, but we are having to wait for Kheredine Idessane to finish his BBC Radio Scotland report from the Australian Open, where Andy Murray plays overnight.

  7. Aberdeen 1-0 Celtic

    Quote Message: I thought Aberdeen deserved it, but I thought they were never in control of it in the first half as Dundee put on a very good show. However, it was one-way traffic in the second half and Aberdeen find themselves with plenty of confidence going into this big game against Celtic from Willie Miller BBC Radio Scotland pundit

  8. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Aberdeen deservedly secure the win that takes them to within three points of Premiership leaders Celtic.

    Dundee remain in sixth and miss a chance to overtake Ross County.

  9. FULL-TIME

    Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

  10. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    We are running out of those four minutes of stoppage time.

  11. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Dundee almost grab a surprise equaliser as Greg Stewart's corner is flicked on by Darren O'Dea's head and Gary Harkins' lazy attempt at an overhead kick goes over the crossbar. To be fair to the midfielder, it came to him at an awkward height and at pace.

  12. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Dundee at last get an effort on goal, but Gary Harkins' low drive is easy for goalkeeper Scott Brown.

  13. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Concern for Aberdeen as Adam Rooney hobbles away from a challenge. The Dons don't want an injury to their star striker so close to a showdown with leaders Celtic.

  14. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    There's still only one goal in it, but there is little sign that Dundee can rescue this as all the action is heading towards the visitors' goal.

  15. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Cammy Smith's fine, powerful low ball across the face of the Dundee goal just evades the outstretched toe of Adam Rooney.

  16. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Graeme Shinnie nearly catches Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain with a cross-come-shot, but the former Dons man touches the ball wide for another home corner.

  17. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Adam Rooney fires over the Dundee crossbar

  18. Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Cammy Smith comes on for David Goodwillie, the Dons striker who still looks a shadow of the player once sold for big bucks by Dundee United to Blackburn Rovers.

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    Dundee captain Gary Harkins deservedly goes into the referee's book as he goes studs-first into a challenge with Graeme Shinnie. Indeed, the midfielder is probably lucky just to see yellow.

  20. Busy Pittodrie

    Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

    The official attendance is announced as 11,805.
