Aberdeen scored twice in the closing minutes as Craig Brown's team fought back to earn a 3-3 draw with unbeaten league leaders Motherwell at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon.

The Dons, who had drawn their previous three home games 0-0, took the lead through Gavin Rae after six minutes but Michael Higdon equalised for the Steelmen just before half-time.

Shaun Hutchinson headed Motherwell in front early in the second period and it looked all over when Nicky Law added their third goal with eight minutes left. But Niall McGinn pulled one back and Josh Magennis turned Andrew Considine's shot into the net deep into injury time.
