Andrew Considine scored twice as Aberdeen beat Hamilton Academical at Pittodrie and closed the gap at the top of Premiership to eight points.
Considine volleyed Aberdeen ahead from close range after Hamilton had failed to clear a Niall McGinn free-kick.
The Dons dominated the second half, and McGinn hammered in a deserved second from inside the box.
Considine headed in Ryan Christie’s cross at the back post to put the gloss on a dominant Dons display.
With Celtic losing earlier in the day to Kilmarnock, Aberdeen took the opportunity to move closer to the league leaders, while also taking advantage of Rangers’ defeat to Hibernian to move six points clear in second place.
However, Hamilton fall to second-bottom with Ross County and Partick Thistle both picking up points.
