St Johnstone 1 – Ross County 1 (SPL, November 17, 2012) Saints captain Dave MacKay scored his first goal of the season to give the home side a second-half lead but Liam Craig diverted Iain Vigurs drive into his own net as County hit back with 20 minutes remaining.
Dundee 3 – Hibernian 1 (SPL, November 17, 2012) Kyle Benedictus and Kevin McBride both scored their first goals for Barry Smith’s men while veteran striker Steven Milne added the third.
