Livingston 2-1 Clyde

Holders Livingston began their defence of the Scottish Challenge Cup with a narrow first-round win over Clyde.

Danny Mullen put the hosts ahead early on with an unstoppable 30-yard strike past John Gibson.

Livi doubled their lead when another long-range effort beat Gibson, this time from Myles Hippolyte.

Michael Bolochoweckyj halved Clyde's deficit before the break when he headed home Chris Mitchell's cross but it would prove only to be consolation.
