We will need to give you Paul Hartley's reaction to the defeat later on the website as we are still waiting for the no-doubt disappointed Dundee manager.

Rovers and Spiders share spoils

In League Two tonight, Albion Rovers drew 1-1 at home to Queen's Park.

Brady scored for the visitors in stoppage time to cancel out Wallace's opener midway through the first half.

It means the Spiders miss a chance to move above East Fife into fourth place and remain a point behind the play-off place.

Rovers remain eighth but are now a point above second-bottom Stranraer with three games in hand.

'A long way to go' - McIntyre

FT: Ross County 2-1 Dundee

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre on BBC Radio Scotland: "it was a nervous affair and I thought we played not bad despite the conditions.

"But I think in the end we deserved it, although it was marginal.

"I thought our wide players - Jim O'Brien and Michael Gardyne - were vital.

"These were the kinds of games we have lost too often this season, but credit to the players, they kept going.

"There is certainly a long way to go. There's no way we are out of trouble."

'One goal was enough' - McInnes

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "We didn't have the same rhythm or flow to our game because of a combination of things.

"Caley Thistle were very rigid and competitive and played a back five.

"But it is brilliant to get the three points and break that record for consecutive home wins that has existed for a long time.

"We looked a little leggy, but when you look back on the game, it was a bit more comfortable than it seems.

"One goal was enough and, although we wanted to get more, we will take that."

County blow for Caley Thistle

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

That victory for Ross County over Dundee rubs salt into the wound of defeat for neighbours Caley Thistle.

Inverness remain two points behind Hamilton Accies and another point adrift of Motherwell before the Lanarkshire rivals meet tomorrow evening.

However, County have given themselves a bit of breathing space and are six points clear of their fellow Highland outfit.

'Seven games we can win' - Foran

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Richie Foran on BBC Radio Scotland: "I think we had some good opportunities in the first half to go 1-0 up and against the top teams you have to take them.

"We worked on set-pieces and we switched off and give away a sloppy goal.

"We are not going to be judged on games against Aberdeen.

"We have seven big games and seven games I think we can win."

FULL-TIME Ross County 2-1 Dundee

Ross County emerge from a breathtaking finish at Victoria Park with what could be a vital three points.

Despite being down to 10 men following Jim O'Brien's second-half sending off, County took the lead through a rather soft penalty award in stoppage time.

Dundee's misery was completed not only by Danny Williams' late sending off but by seeing County leapfrog them into eighth place in the Premiership table.

RED CARD

Ross County 2-1 Dundee

Dundee's Danny Williams is sent off for a second yellow card after some heated scenes inside the County penalty area as the game moves into stoppage time.

GOAL Ross County 2-1 Dundee

Liam Boyce (penalty)

More drama in the Dundee penalty area. Michael Gardyne goes down in the penalty area and, although it looked a little on the soft side, referee John Beaton has no hesitation in pointing to the spot for the second time this evening.

Liam Boyce strolls up and coolly slots the ball down the middle of the goal to give County the lead.

FULL-TIME Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness CT

It's a 10th straight home win for Aberdeen - the first time that's been achieved since the 1950s.

It surpasses the nine-in-a-row achieved by Sir Alex Ferguson's Dons in 1986 thanks to Gary Warren's first-half own goal.

That lifts the Dons 13 points clear of third-placed Rangers.

Holt from the blue

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Clearly boosted by that red card for Ross County, Dundee reawaken as an attacking force.

Kevin Holt surges forward from full-back and unleashes a rasping low strike from 20 yards that flies just wide.

Nervy Dons

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Substitute Alex Fisher attempts an overhead kick for Inverness but can't get anything on it. 

David Raven goes for the follow up, but Aberdeen, who are looking a little nervous at the back, get it clear.

RED CARD

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Another blow for County as they are reduced to 10 men.

Jim O'Brien breaks into the box but appears to throw himself to the ground. 

The referee rules it was a dive, produces the yellow card and, as it's the midfielder's second of the night, he's off.

PENALTY APPEAL

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Huge penalty shout for Ross County.

The home side work an opening and, as the ball comes into the box, it seems to be nicked away from Craig Curran and Tim Chow by the hand of Dundee midfielder Paul McGowan.

A huge let off for Dundee and County will not be happy if they fail to take the three points here.

Willie Miller

Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

It is a sensational miss. It is incredible how that one has stayed out. He just had to get a touch on it

Horror miss

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Somehow Miles Storey fails to makes it 2-0. Jonny Hayes nips down the left and finds the striker on the goal line. 

The striker can't get the ball out from his feet, swivels and ends up clearing it. It's an unbelievable miss.

Victory vital?

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland

A point will suit Dundee far more than County and that's clear from the direction of travel as this half wears on.

The pressure is starting to mount, with increasing urgency among these home players, but Dundee are standing firm. 

Should County gamble? They know the value of a win, but defeat would be so costly.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Miles Storey and Ryan Christie come on for Aberdeen, with Niall McGinn and Adam Rooney making way.

Nae joy for Naismith

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Liam Boyce collects the ball in the box with his back to goal, lays it off for Naismaith just 10 yards out on the right-hand side of the penalty area, but he wildly slashes his effort wide.

O'Dea to the rescue

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Dundee have been forced on to the back-foot and their captain, Darren O'Dea, intervenes to prevent them falling behind again.

A cross to the back post finds Liam Boyce, who looks to nod the ball back to Jim O'Brien lurking on the six-yard line, but just as the County man looks to supply the finish, O'Dea arrives in the nick of time to head clear. 

Good defending.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Niall McGinn cuts inside on to his left foot, but his shot is well off target. 

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is set to change things, with two former Caley Thistle players entering the fray - Ryan Christie and Miles Storey.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Ryan Jack's cross is aimed towards Adam Rooney in yards of space, but it takes a nick off a defender and the striker fails to make a connection. Aberdeen just can not put this game to bed.

GREAT SAVE!

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Great play from Aberdeen. Adam Rooney feeds Jonny Hayes down the right and the striker, in turn, plays a delightful ball in for Graeme Shinnie.

But Inverness goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams makes a great save to deny him, with Shinnie sending the rebound wide.

Aberdeen have not been at their best, but you have to give credit to Caley Thistle for the way they've closed them down

Wighton on for Ojamaa

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Paul Hartley introduces some fresh blood as striker Craig Wighton replaces Henrik Ojamaa.

PENALTY APPEAL

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Aberdeen are applying the pressure and Ryan Jack has a shot deflected just wide. 

From the corner, Adam Rooney attempts, and spectacularly fails, with an overhead kick. 

Then Jonny Hayes hits the deck, but referee Andrew Dallas waves away the penalty claims.

CLOSE!

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

So close for County and it probably should have been a second for the home side.

Liam Boyce rises at the front of the six-yard box but heads just wide of the far post.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Aberdeen's Niall McGinn swings a free-kick well over the bar. It continues to be chances at both ends.

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain has to tip a Jim O'Brien cross over the crossbar after it is caught dangerously on the wind.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

This game is still very much alive. Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis has to push away a fierce Liam Polworth shot. 

From the corner, no-one in white can get a significant touch to edge it towards goal.

Shot in the arm for Dee

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland

The equaliser just before half time was just what Dundee needed and puts all the pressure back on Ross County, who urgently need a win.

Henrik Ojamma has got in behind a couple of times and his pace seems to be a problem, but County will point to what seemed a fabulous save by Scott Bain just after Dundee's goal to deny Liam Boyce.

This will be nervy with neither side really able to afford any slip-up.

KICK-OFF

Ross County 1-1 Dundee

County get the second half under way in Dingwall, somewhat behind the match at Pittodrie.

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Corner from Jonny Hayes reaches Andrew Considine, who bullets a header down and wide.

The big Aberdeen defender is on a mission to find his seventh goal of the season after his hat-trick exploits on Friday.

Warren own goal

Aberdeen 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Referee Andrew Dallas has given that Aberdeen goal ... not to Ash Taylor, not to Andrew Considine, who looked to be celebrating what would have been a fourth goal in two games.

No, Mr Dallas has ruled it as an own goal by Caley Thistle defender Gary Warren.
