ABERDEEN bounced back from their recent Euro pain by seeing off Kilmarnock 2-0 at Pittodrie.
Graeme Shinnie and Adam Rooney grabbed the goals as the Dons continued their 100% start to the Premiership campaign.
Dons boss Derek McInnes had insisted he wanted a positive reaction after crashing out of the Europa League to Kairat Almaty of Kazakhstan.
He got it as the Dons completely dominated to continue their winning start to the Premiership campaign.
There were three changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Kairat Almaty on Thursday.
Defender Andrew Considine and striker David Goodwillie both dropped to the bench with Peter Pawlett ruled out.
Last season’s leading goal-scorer Adam Rooney came in from the start as did centre-back Paul Quinn and midfielder Willo Flood.
Aberdeen were the first to threated when Jonny Hayes blazed a 25 yard free kick over in the third minute.
In the 13th minute a low drive from Niall McGinn was pushed wide by Killie keeper Jamie MacDonald.
From the resultant corner Paul Quinn’s glancing header from 10 yards smashed off the post.
Kenny McLean then tested keeper MacDonald with a low 20 yard drive but the stopper saved at the near post.
Again MacDonald denied the Dons on the half hour mark when Shaleum Logan raced onto a McGinn free-kick to the back post.
The full-back’s powerful header was blocked by a point blank save.
Aberdeen’s dominance eventually paid off in the 37th minute when Jonny Hayes burst through the defence.
He found Graeme Shinnie and the full-back unleashed a superb drive into the roof of the net from 10 yards out.
Struggling Kilmarnock failed to muster a single shot either on or off target in the first half.
Killie finally threatened in the 49th minute when Scott Robinson headed wide from 10 yards out.
The Dons doubled their advantage in the 55th minute when Willo Flood was clumsily brought down in the penalty box by Lee Ashcroft.
It was a stonewall penalty which Adam Rooney calmly converted.
