Aberdeen   3 - 2   Raith Rovers

Aberdeen v Raith Rovers

Highlights - Aberdeen 3-2 Raith Rovers

Aberdeen came from behind against Raith Rovers to reach the quarter finals of the Co-operative Insurance Cup.

Paul Hartley scored his fifth penalty of the season to give the Dons a 10th minute lead before Jamie Mole pulled the visitors level.

Gregory Tade added a second before the break and Scott Vernon had the hosts level as the hour mark approached.

Vernon saved the Dons' blushes in the 78th minute, sliding in from close range for a hard-fought win.

The Dons were looking to avenge their humiliating Scottish Cup fifth-round replay defeat by the First Division side in February, but had their work cut out to avoid another cup shock.

Raith could have gone behind after only four minutes had Andrew Considine managed to direct his header on target from a tantalising Hartley free-kick.

However, the hosts broke the deadlock after 10 minutes from the penalty spot when Dons skipper Hartley coolly converted after Willie Dyer halted Rory McArdle's surging run into the box.

Raith were gifted an equaliser 14 minutes later when Jamie Langfield, who had endured a nervy start to the match, made a mess of collecting a Stephen Simmons free-kick and the grateful Mole calmly slotted the loose ball past the stranded goalkeeper.

Derek Young fired wildly over the bar before Mark Ferry was guilty of spurning an even better opening at the other end when he failed to apply the finishing touch to Tade's enticing centre.

But it was Tade, who scored the winner when the sides met back in February, who gave his side the lead when he tapped home after Mole capitalised on a Jerel Ifil error.

Raith should have extended their lead four minutes after the restart but the unmarked Laurie Ellis could only head Allan Walker's driven corner over the crossbar.

Rovers were made to rue that miss when the Dons drew level after 56 minutes when Vernon headed home a Hartley free-kick.

The home side looked the more likely to add a third with Chris Maguire flashing a shot wide of the target and substitute Vujadinovic, who had replaced the injured Considine, heading over.

The hosts suffered a blow with 15 minutes remaining when skipper Hartley limped off with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Ryan Jack.

Despite the loss, Aberdeen regained the lead after 77 minutes when Young sped down the wing and played the perfect ball across goal to give Vernon an easy finish.

Darren Mackie could have put the match beyond Raith in the dying stages but failed to connect properly with only the keeper to beat.
