Our panel review Aberdeen’s dramatic 3-3 league draw with Celtic and establish who could’ve played their way into the team for Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final clash. We also try to work out why a decent Ross County attacking performance turned into a heavy loss at Motherwell, and what Cove Rangers, Peterhead and Elgin City have shown they can do this season in their first two matches.

In this week's episode, our panel ask how Aberdeen didn't beat Dundee United at Tannadice and conclude Ross County's defence is a base from which they can build, as evidenced in their 0-0 Premiership draw with Hibs. There's also plenty of reaction to Caley Thistle, Cove Rangers, Peterhead and Elgin City in league action (finally). At Highland level, we discuss the League Cup semi-finals and who will lift the trophy between finalists Buckie Thistle and Rothes.
