Livi’s wait to return to winning ways goes on as the Dons edge a close tie at Pittodrie by a single goal just before the interval.
Aberdeen bounced back from their heavy defeat against Celtic to beat Livingston in a tight Scottish Premiership encounter.
Bojan Miovski’s excellent first-time finish just before the break proved to be the difference between the sides.
Livingston huffed and puffed in the second half, but Jay Gorter was never really troubled in the Aberdeen goal.
Aberdeen rise to sixth in the league, moving above Livingston on goals scored.
The game was a relatively tight affair for the first half hour, but Aberdeen gradually pushed Livingston back, and were rewarded for a spell of sustained pressure.
Ryan Duncan swung in a testing cross from the right onto the head of Matty Pollock, who managed to find the unmarked Miovski, and Aberdeen’s main man fired into the roof of the net from seven yards out.
Livingston improved after the break, and thought they’d drawn level when Joel Nouble curled beyond Gorter, but his shot was cleared off the line.
That close call seemed to jolt the hosts back into life; Ross McCrorie and Ylber Ramadani both saw shots go wide from the edge of the box.
From there, interim boss Barry Robson’s side saw out the game with relative ease, as Livingston failed to create any notable opportunities.
