  1. What the weekend has in store

    That's all from the first installment of Scottish Premiership action, with Aberdeen celebrating a 1-0 victory on a wild, windy night at Pittodrie. It wasn't a classic but there's more to come over the next two days.

    Tomorrow, we have...

    Dundee v St Mirren

    Hearts v Kilmarnock

    St Johnstone v Hamilton

    And on Sunday it's...

    Livingston v Celtic (12:00)

    Rangers v Motherwell

    All 15:00 kick-offs unless stated.

  2. We didn't deserve to lose - Lennon

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Hibs head coach Neil Lennon says he has been left "frustrated".

    "Not disappointed with the performance in very difficult conditions," he tells BBC Scotland's Sportsound.

    "We gave the ball away for their goal and passed up three very good chances in the second half.

    "I don't think Aberdeen did enough to win the game and we didn't deserve to lose the game."

    Lennon agrees that it was not like his side to go three games without a goal - or be without a win in four outings.

    "It is maybe just last minute decision making or composure," he says.

    "It is something we're not used to, but you are not going to be on an upward trajectory all the time."

  3. McInnes hails Dons' work ethic

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Aberdeen Derek McInnes tells BBC Sportsound: "I thought we were more competitive than Hibs.

    "I'm really pleased with the worth ethic. With the terrible conditions and swirling wind, we talked about not losing the game with a mistake.

    "Our work at top end of the pitch was the platform for the win. You can't allow a team like Hibs to settle and enjoy the game. Shinnie and Ferguson tackled like lions in midfield and that made it easier for our back four.

    "Gary's pace and quality for the goal is what we expect from him.

    "It's not often that Hibs don't score and it's pleasing to keep another clean sheet against a good side."

  4. True granite from Aberdeen

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Willie Miller

    Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It's been a great spell for Derek McInnes, with Aberdeen showing what they are made of. They have been grinding out results and when they get one goal, invariably, that's all they need
  5. One shot, one goal

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Aberdeen had one shot on target over 93 minutes and it was a corker from Gary Mackay-Steven on 40 minutes to win the game.

    The home side were typically resolute on an evening that was marred by gusting winds. Not a lot of flowing football but plenty of grunt.

  6. Hibs left to rue missed opportunities

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Tam McManus

    Former Hibernian striker on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Hibs deserved something for their second-half performance but that's what happens when you don't take your chances
  7. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Aberdeen hold on to claim all three points and nudge up to fifth place in the Premiership, level on points with Kilmarnock and Rangers.

    That's four wins in 12 days for the Dons.

    It's four without a win for Hibs, who made all of the running in the second half but couldn't find an equaliser.

  8. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    A great tackle from Niall McGinn denies Sean Mackie a swipe at goal inside the penalty area. Corner to Hibs...

  9. Three minutes added

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Can Hibs summon up one last chance for an equaliser?

  10. YELLOW CARD Milligan (Hibs)

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Hibs captain Mark Milligan is cautioned for a lazy swipe at the heels of Niall McGinn.

    Now Aberdeen eat up some more time by sending on Dominic Ball for goal-hero Gary Mackay-Steven.

  11. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Sean Mackie takes over from Lewis Stevenson at left-back for Hibs. Mackie was a late addition to the squad, so this is an unexpected run out for the 20-year-old, albeit a brief one.

  12. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Another attacking change for the hosts as Sam Cosgrove is asked to put in a shift for the final five minutes, taking over from Stevie May.

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Hibs make a double change with Lewis Allan and Daryl Horgan introduced in place of Vykintas Slivka and Jamie Maclaren.

  15. Hat is that...

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Tyrone Smith

    BBC Scotland at Pittodrie

    Quote Message: Hibs have created several good chances since the interval. It is bad news for Neil Lennon’s hat, which is hurled to the ground in disgust. The hat is now gone altogether, the head coach's hands are on his head as another chance is spurned
  16. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Now it's Martin Boyle's turn to whip a great delivery into the Aberdeen box for Florian Kamberi but the striker makes an awful mess of things, swiping at the ball and missing altogether.

    It's been a frustrating evening for the Hibs centre forward.

  17. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    The Dons make their first change, with Bruce Anderson taking over from James Wilson up top.

  18. Formation change helps Hibs

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Tam McManus

    Former Hibernian striker on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Now Hibs have changed to a 4-4-2, they look a lot more dangerous, they look like they might get a goal
  19. CLOSE!

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Vykintas Slivka whips in a lovely, early cross from the left and Florian Kamberi gets across his man at the near post only to see his deft touch deflected inches wide of the far post.

  20. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-0 Hibernian

    Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan thinks about coming, retreats, then comes out again as Stevie May gallops after a long punt into Hibs territory. The Dons forward loops the ball over the uncertain custodian but Darren McGregor does a great job tracking back to mop up.
