Aberdeen re-started their league campaign with an encounter with early season pace setters Livingston.
In an exciting match they ran out 5-3 winners after twice having to come from behind though the Dons started brightly and had a Tiernan goal disallowed for offside. Livvy took the lead after Mark Peat brought down Kine. Brittain scored from the resulting penalty. The Dons drew level when Scott Michie scored after a poor clearance from the Livingston keeper.
Livingston regained the lead shortly after when Ormiston headed home a Kine corner. Darren Mackie brought the Dons level after the Livingston keeper was caught at the edge of the penalty box in two minds whether to catch or head the ball clear. Mackie ntercepted the ball taking it round the keeper to score easily. The Dons were in the lead at half time after the Livingston defence had difficulty clearing a corner and Scott Michie shot home.
In the second half Kine drew level for Livingston when they were awarded a free kick after Mark Peat picked up a pass back. Despite a spell of Livingston pressure Darren Mackie scored against the run of play and Ross O'Donoghue beat two men inside the box to secure the Dons victory.
