Ian Murray got off to a winning start as St Mirren manager against Berwick Rangers in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

His side had to come from behind, however, with Blair Henderson firing the visitors ahead in the opening minutes.

Steven Thompson levelled from the penalty spot after Stevie Mallan had been fouled.

And two Scott Agnew strikes in the second half secured St Mirren's place in the second round.
