Aberdeen crashed out of the Scottish League Cup as First Division Dundee claimed a 3-2 win after extra time at Dens Park on Tuesday in their third round match.

Goals in either half of normal time from defender Eddie Malone and winger Craig Forsyth looked to have given Dundee a deserved scalp before the Premier league outfit levelled with a double from substitute Michael Paton.

The momentum looked to have swung the way of the visitors but Leigh Griffiths pounced in the closing seconds of the first half of extra time to send Dundee into the quarter-finals.

Having exited the UEFA Europa League in embarrassing fashion against Sigma Olomouc it was another knock-out display to forget for Dons boss Mark McGhee.
