Queen's Park 0-2 Forfar Athletic

A first-half double for Forfar Athletic clinched victory over Queen's Park in the first round of the League Cup.

Derek Young neatly finished into the bottom corner after good combination play with Christopher Templeman.

Spiders goalkeeper William Muir saved Martyn Fotheringham's spot kick, but Danny Denholm was quick to react as he fired in the rebound home.

Gavin Swankie and Fotheringham missed chances to extend the lead before Muir saved well from Bryan Hodge.
