Hopefully you'll join us again on Tuesday on another big night for Scottish football. Not only at Dens Park as Dundee host title-chasing Celtic but also at Ibrox, where Rangers could confirm their promotion to the top flight by clinching the Championship title at home to Dumbarton.
- Church heads home Hayes cross
- McGinn & Shinnie strikes extend lead
- Aberdeen four points behind leaders Celtic
- Hamilton four points off second bottom
Hamilton will be hoping that Dundee will be tired from their midweek exertions when they host Paul Hartley's side on Saturday as they look to steer clear of relegation trouble with Kilmarnock and, especially, Dundee United picking up points behind them.
The tussle for the Premiership moves on to Tuesday night, when Celtic play their game in hand away to Dundee.
The reigning champions could have established a seven-point lead again by the time Aberdeen travel to face Hearts on Friday.
"Really pleased with what the players gave.
"It was important that we came out of the traps and I think we knocked the stuffing out of Hamilton by being so clinical.
"It was a great start for us and, in the second half, we still created so many opportunities.
"All in all, a brilliant day's work and great to get such a high level of performance.
"It was important we showed that we are still fighting and we owe it ourselves to finish the season as strong as possible.
"We will deserve to finish wherever we finish."
"We switched off at the early goals and it is difficult place to come without giving them two goals of a start.
"We did better in the second half, but Aberdeen deserved to win and you can't argue with the result.
This was always going to be a difficult place to come against an Aberdeen team who have been going well.
"We'll take the positives from that improved second half."
It was a dominant display by Aberdeen and they were unfortunate not to score a few more in the second half, while Martin Canning will be furious with Accies' first-half performance
I have a soft spot for Accies, but they have their work to do and I have worries about their fitness. Aberdeen were terrific to watch today
For Accies, it is back to the drawing board and they finish the weekend one point closer to that relegation play-off spot presently occupied by Kilmarnock.
Aberdeen ease to victory, with all their hard work having been done in the first half, to move again to restore the four-point gap at the top of the Premiership behind leaders Celtic.
Accies midfielder Ali Crawford is lucky to receive only a yellow card for a Liam Bridcutt-style two-footed challenge that leaves Graeme Shinnie with painful shins.
Dons captain Ryan Jack is withdrawn with the game already won, being replaced in midfield with 17-year-old Frank Ross.
Academical are not learning their lessons. Seconds after Eamonn Brophy has to clear off the line from a looping header by Mark Reynolds, the Aberdeen defender is left unmarked at the next corner and goalkeeper Michael McGovern is forced to turn the ball over the crossbar.
Craig Storie replaces Willo Flood in the Aberdeen midfield.
Maybe Aberdeen have tailed off as they know the job is done, but Hamilton have got clsoer to them in the second half
Willo Flood's blushes are spared by an offside flag as the little unmarked midfielder somehow manages to head wide from four yards at the back post.
Muted cries for a penalty by Accies' Antons Kurakins as he is challenged from behind by Jonny Hayes after getting in behind the Dons winger. Would be interesting to see that again as it certainly was a dangerous challenge only eight yards from goal.
Jonny Hayes gets to the by-line and Niall McGinn should have done better than head into the Accies side-netting from six yards.
Niall McGinn has another go as he races towards the Accies penalty box and unleashes a powerful drive just over the crossbar.
Accies are their own worst enemies and Dougie Imrie loses possession as he tries a trick too many at the edge of his own penalty area and Niall McGinn fires a drive into the arms of goalkeeper Michael McGovern.
Accies make a change, with Oumar Diaby, who has been an isolated figure up front, being replaced with Eamonn Brophy.
Darian MacKinnon aims an elbow into the face of Kenny McLean after releasing the ball. The hotheaded Hamilton midfielder is fortunate not to receive at least a yellow card for bit of wrestling action.
It's Simon Church's turn to find room for a header on the Accies goal, but the big striker can only send his near-post effort high into the stand.
Another brave double save on the goalline by Michael McGovern from a Shay Logan header as the Dons reassert themselves.
Niall McGinn weaves his way in-field and his powerful drive is pushed wide by Accies goalkeeper Michael McGovern.
Accies are edging themselves into the game and Oumar Diaby's flicked header forces goalkeeper Scott Brown to touch the ball over the crossbar from Antons Kurakins' cross to the front post. That's Hamilton's first corner of the game.
The normal flow of play is resumed, with Accies caught sleeping at a short corner before managing to scramble it clear.
What's this? An Accies shot on target? Surely not? However, Dougie Imrie's low drive from a difficult angle is easily held by goalkeeper Scott Brown at his near post.
Dougie Imrie goes into the referee's book for a late challenge on Graeme Shinnie.
Confirmation that Andrew Considine has come on for Ash Taylor at the heart of the Dons defence.
Aberdeen are well on their way to narrowing the gap on leaders Celtic to four points again as they kick off the second half at Pittodrie. There appears little hopeless Hamilton can do now to take even a point from this game.
The teams are back out on the field at Pittodrie and it looks like Andrew Considine is coming on at half-time.
It is damage limitation for Hamilton now because it could end up an embarrassment if Aberdeen continue like this
Aberdeen have been excellent and some of their passing and movement has been lovely to watch. But they have been allowed to do that because Accies have been so open
The Aberdeen players receive a deserved standing ovation as the half-time whistle goes. There are only about 80 visiting fans to share their side's misery.
Shinnie is on fire and with service coming to Church and Hayes this an Aberdeen team in charge. Glad to see Kenny & McGinn on the scoresheet too. COYR!
