Stranraer 0-8 Livingston

Marc McNulty hit a hat-trick as Livingston cruised to a win at Stranraer in the Scottish Communities League Cup first round.

Livingston went ahead after 17 minutes, McNulty crossing for Jordan Morton to sweep home from 12 yards.

McNulty doubled the lead by slotting in an Iain Russell pass in the 23rd minute.

Russell then drilled a shot into the top corner from inside the area six minutes before half-time and turned provider after 61 minutes, crossing for Kevin McCann, who produced a cool finish.

An inviting cross from Robert Barr three minutes later gave McNulty a close-range finish for the fifth.

Russell added his second with a bullet effort from 12 yards with 10 minutes remaining before McNulty secured his hat-trick with a rasping 18-yard drive three minutes later.

Morton completed the rout with a spectacular 20-yard shot in the 87th minute.
