Hibernian 2 – Motherwell 3 (SPL, December 15, 2012) Hibs dominated the early exchanges and led 2-0 thanks to goals either side of half-time from Eoin Doyle, but Jamie Murphy’s double and Bob McHugh’s late strike won it for Motherwell against the odds.

Ross County 1 – Dundee 1 (SPL, December 15, 2012) A brilliant long-range strike from Iain Davidson gave Dundee the lead as half time approached but Gary Glen’s first goal of the season gave Derek Adams’ side a share of the spoils.
Dundee United 4 – Inverness CT 4 (SPL, December 15, 2012) United were 3-0 ahead inside 8 minutes thanks to an own goal by Josh Meekings and strikes from Daly and Rudi Skacel, but a hat-trick from Billy McKay and a header from Gary Warren appeared to have given Inverness an incredible comeback victory before Daly’s late strike.
