Hibs 1-0 Aberdeen

Hibs brought Aberdeen's early-season renaissance to a halt as a late Stevie Crawford penalty sent the Premier League leaders tumbling out of the League Cup at Easter Road.

For long periods it looked as if extra-time would be required, but when Shaun Dennis sent a Tony Rougier corner back across goal and Pat McGinlay helped it on, David Rowson appeared to stick out a hand.

Crawford ignored the Dons protests to hit the penalty into the right-hand corner.
