Match Recap

Aberdeen struck twice in the final two minutes of extra time to knock out Kilmarnock in a belatedly thrilling Scottish Cup replay and set up a quarter-final with St Mirren.

The Pittodrie side trailed with two minutes of the 90 to play, and again as the game entered its 119th minute. But Sam Cosgrove's penalty and a Connor Johnston own goal clinched victory.

It looked as if Mohamed El Makrini's overhead kick, then Nicke Kabamba's goal, would win the tie for Kilmarnock, but Aberdeen somehow snatched it.

Andy Considine had cancelled out El Makrini's first-half opener and Matty Kennedy headed Aberdeen ahead inside the first minute of extra time.

Eamonn Brophy's free-kick restored parity for Kilmarnock before three goals in the final four minutes earned Aberdeen a tie in Paisley. 


Alex Dyer: "It's a sad one to sum up, Madness decisions have cost us. The game was won and we had our hands on the next round of the cup. They are not kids out there. They are experienced players who have been in this situation before and they should know how to see out the game. If people don't do their jobs, good sides punish you and that's what they've done. We blew it, simple as that."
