Get involved

Until Sunday...

Well, three games ended 7-0 and two went to penalties. Hopefully the fans were entertained. We'll be back tomorrow for Dundee United's match against Dunfermline, where the winner will go through to the last 16. Indeed, a draw will be enough for United. The draw for the last 16 follows the Sunday action. Have a great evening.

'Huffed and puffed'

Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark: "We've huffed and puffed. We have lots of work to do and we have to dust ourselves down. Players select themselves and they deselect themselves. We are still very confident and we still believe in one another."

'Terrific start' to Peterhead's season

Peterhead manager Jim McInally: "We had three penalty kicks to win that and we missed them. It must have been a terrific game for a neutral to watch. We looked out on our feet but we never gave in, we went at it again and up until the last 5-10 minutes I thought we played well. I knew we had two ways of doing this today - win the game or win on penalties. I think two of our penalties are away down to Alexandria by now! The format gets you up to speed, that's for sure. I think it's £26,000-£30,000 we get now. It's been a terrific start."

We have 15 of the 16

So there we have it. Rangers, Peterhead, St Johnstone, Inverness CT, Alloa, Partick Thistle, Hamilton and Morton go through as group winners.

Motherwell, Queen of the South and Ayr United go through as the best runners-up, plus either Dunfermline or Dundee United from Group C. They play tomorrow.

Alloa, Partick Thistle, Rangers and Morton will be seeded in the draw for the last 16 along with the four European representatives who are joining the competition - Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibernian.

Can Dark Blues keep Stewart?

Dundee manager Paul Hartley: "It's going to be a tough league this year. All the preparation begins for Ross County. It's a tough away game. We want to push for the top six but it's not going to be easy. I've got a good group and I think we're entertaining to watch. Greg Stewart is such a terrific player for us. If we've got him at the end of the transfer window, terrific. Bigger clubs are going to come and watch your players."

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT

Dumbarton and Peterhead are now into sudden death in their penalty shoot-out after drawing 3-3 in their match. Peterhead can go through if they win. Drama!

Get Involved

#bbcsportscot I've really enjoyed the new league cup so far - some upsets, some hammerings, penalty shoot-outs & plenty of goals. Perfect.

Skacel short circuited

Raith Rovers 0-1 Alloa

Scott Davie

BBC Scotland

"That was a bizarre incident at Stark's Park as Rudi Skacel tried to come on as substitute but referee Kevin Clancy sent him back to the dugout as he had black cycle shorts underneath his white team shorts. They have to be the same colour or they have to come off...so the Hearts legend was forced to strip in the technical area before finally getting on."

Kane who?

Dundee 5-0 Forfar

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

Is this the question the Dundee fans may be asking as the combination of Stewart, Duffy and Teijsse cause the visitors' defence all sorts of problems. They may be out of the competition but with the opening league match just one week away Paul Hartley will no doubt be looking for his players to build confidence ahead of the game against Ross County.

GOAL

Leighton McIntosh's goal for Peterhead means this match hangs in the balance and the visitors could yet clinch second place - even so, would it be enough to go through?

Bobby dazzler

Kilmarnock 0-0 Albion Rovers

John Barnes

BBC Scotland at Rugby Park

Going Dutch

Dundee 3-0 Forfar

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

"New Dutch striker Yordi Teijsse looks as if he could be a crowd pleaser. A big lad but still looks as if he has a bit to go before he reaches full fitness."
