@BBCSportScot Dundee United haven't lost a game since being relegated against Dundee - 11 games (incl. 2 friendlies) C'mon the Arabs!

Ray of light at Tannadice

Dundee United 3-1 Partick Thistle

Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon: "Overall I am really pleased about tonight. There are huge positives. Blair Spittal did well and Tope was fantastic but Cammy Smith's composure and his movement for the goals was fantastic. There is quality through the leagues. It's just about impossible to bowl teams over nowadays. We just need to keep this going, keep the performances up."

Archibald downcast

Dundee United 3-1 Partick Thistle

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald: "It was awful. It was the opposite of the weekend. I feel sorry for our fans who paid good money to travel here and pay in to the game. Guys who we usually depend on just didn't do it for us today. We've had positive results but that has brought us back down. Nobody got pass marks tonight."

'It bodes well'

Alloa 1-0 Inverness CT

Alloa manager Jack Ross: "We restricted Inverness to few clear-cut chances. I am enormously proud of my players. I think it is 44 years since the club has been at this stage of the competition. I just wanted them to win the game. It won't be easy, whoever we get (in the last eight). Our record in the competition (has been) fantastic. Neil Parry had a great save in the first half and we were under the cosh at that point. With having the goal, we always had something to protect and we did that very well. The players are loving that feeling of coming in having won the game. It bodes well but I've been in football long enough to know it can change very quickly."

Quitongo the conqueror

Hamilton 1-2 Morton

"Quitongo, I thought he was absolutely superb. He ran that back four ragged. I think Jim Duffy's side are going to be a force this season. A thoroughly deserved victory for them tonight."

BBC Scotland football pundit Derek Ferguson

'The cups are a bonus'

Dundee United 3-1 Partick Thistle

Dundee United's hat-trick hero Cammy Smith: "We came here tonight wanting to take the game to them. They are no mugs, it's a great victory. We are down in the Championship so this year it's all about bouncing back. The cups are a bonus, we are concentrating o the league. It was a great performance by us, we looked dangerous, we have to be happy with tonight's work. Aberdeen thought my best interests were to go out on loan this season. It wasn't like I was being shoved out the door. I am enjoying playing regular football. It's a long season ahead. I want to get goals this season."

Alloa, we salute you!

League One Alloa deserve a special mention, registering their sixth consecutive win and maintaining their 100% record this season. And against a good Caley Thistle side, too. They'll be rubbing their hands at the thought of who they might get in tomorrow night's draw for the quarter-finals.

Premiership trio stumble

It's been a good night for three lower-league teams, with Alloa, Dundee United and Morton all enjoying wins against Premiership opposition.

FULL-TIME

Hamilton 1-2 Morton

 "I think it was Hamilton's mindset, that they just had to turn up. Morton came out the traps and were at it right from the off."

ADDED TIME

@BBCSportScot good to see Hibs returning to form in cup competitions.. #hibsedit

FULL-TIME

Rangers 5-0 Peterhead

Queens jubilant

Hibernian 1-3 Queen of the South

Jeez-oh, I think I'd better dig out some photos of the Doonhamers celebrating. Those joyous Hibs ones from a few minutes ago seem really out of place.

Queens' monster mash

Hibernian 1-3 Queen of the South

"Hibs are comatose at the back! Queens have monstered them!"

BBC Scotland's Tom English at Easter Road

GOAL (Dykes, 87 mins)

Hibernian 1-3 Queen of the South

That's done it! Queen of the South have staged a fantastic comeback at Easter Road. Lyndon Dykes has scored goal number three for the Doonhamers, and they're set to send Hibs crashing out of the League Cup on their own patch.

GOAL (Anderson, 83 mins)

Hibernian 1-2 Queen of the South

Well, well, well. Queen of the South have stood this game on its head! With seven minutes to go, and goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw in no-man's-land, Grant Anderson heads home what could be the winning goal!

GREAT SAVE!

Dundee Utd 3-1 Partick Thistle

United striker Tope Obadeyi is away from his marker and tries to round Ryan Scully, but the Thistle keeper makes a great save to keep the visitors in it...just.

Nervy for Neil

Hibernian 1-1 Queen of the South

Neil Lennon's Hibs were pummeling Queen of the South, but Steven Dobbie's equaliser has drastically changed this game. Dobbie played under Lennon at Bolton Wanderers last season.

The Hibees boss won't be too happy right now...is extra-time beckoning?

'A really soft penalty' for Thistle

Dundee Utd 3-1 Partick Thistle

"It is a really soft penalty given by the referee Steven McLean," reckons former Aberdeen defender Willie Miller on Radio Scotland. "There is barely any contact on Chris Erskine. It is minimal."

A goal from the heavens

Hibernian 1-1 Queen of the South

"That Queen of the South goal dropped out of the sky. Incredible. Nobody saw that one coming, the Hibs defence most of all. The home team getting suckered for their wastefulness in the first half."

BBC Scotland reporter Tom English at Easter Road

GOAL (Dodoo, 65 mins)

Rangers 5-0 Peterhead

It's a first goal in Rangers colours for Joe Dodoo. He thrashes in James Tavernier's cut-back. The goals just keep coming at Ibrox.

GOAL (Dobbie, 65 mins)

Hibernian 1-1 Queen of the South

Hibernian are made to pay for their wastefulness. And it's the former Hibee Steven Dobbie who comes off the bench for the Doonhamers and punishes the hosts. He hammers the ball past Ross Laidlaw from Dean Brotherston's cut-back. Remarkably, it's all-square at Easter Road.

GOAL (Welsh pen, 65 mins)

Dundee Utd 3-1 Partick Thistle

Over the Hill? No chance

Rangers 4-0 Peterhead

Mark Warburton signed veteran centre-back Clint Hill with shoring up his defence in mind, more so than his goal threat. But the 37-year-old has netted twice this evening - both goals from corners, with Rangers sticking the ball in the mixer, rather than the accustomed short set-piece.

PENALTY

Dundee Utd 3-0 Partick

Penalty for Thistle...

GOAL (Quitongo, 63 mins)

Hamilton 1-2 Morton

The lad Jai Quitongo is bamboozling his old man's former club. Morton have deservedly turned this match around.

GREAT SAVE!

Hamilton 1-1 Morton

Remi Matthews moves his feet faster than the late great soul hero James Brown to position himself in such a way that he can tip a deflected effort over the Hamilton bar.

GOAL (Hill, 56 mins)

Rangers 4-0 Peterhead

And no sooner do Peterhead go down to 10 men, than Rangers extend their lead further. It's Clint Hill with his second goal, from another corner kick. There's still half an hour to play at Ibrox - and this one could be a cricket score.

GOAL (Forbes, 59 mins)

Hamilton 1-1 Morton

Remi Matthews is finally beaten in the Hamilton goal as Ross Forbes lashes in a 22-yard free-kick.

RED CARD

Rangers 3-0 Peterhead

Oh dear. From bad to worse for Peterhead at Ibrox. Midfielder Nathan Blockley is heading for an early bath after a late challenge on Joey Barton. This could get very ugly.

Fortress Indodrill, anyone?

Alloa 1-0 Inverness CT

CLOSE!

Hibernian 1-0 Queen of the South

Acrobatic double-save from Queens keeper Lee Robinson, brilliantly denying Lewis Stevenson, then James Keatings, as Hibs look to double their lead.

CLOSE!

Hibernian 1-0 Queen of the South

Queen of the South carve out their first decent chance of the match. Lyndon Dykes cuts inside and forces Hibs keeper Ross Laidlaw into action.
