Josh Magennis scored deep in injury time to earn Aberdeen a point against Motherwell in a highly-entertaining 3-3 draw.

Gavin Rae netted Aberdeen's first goal at Pittodrie this season after six minutes before the in-form Michael Higdon equalised for the Steelmen from close range after 42 minutes. Defender Shaun Hutchinson headed Well in front three minutes after the break before Nicky Law looked to have ensured victory with eight minutes remaining.

However Dons substitute Niall McGinn headed home two minutes later to set up a rousing finish with Northern Irishman Magennis netting the equaliser to deny Motherwell a three-point lead at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League table.
