Stirling Albion 0-1 Airdrieonians

Jordan Morton's first-half strike handed Airdrieonians a win over Stirling Albion in the first round of the Scottish League Cup.

Willie Robertson nearly gave Stirling the lead when his curled effort went close, while Bryan Prunty and Morton had good chances for the visitors.

Taylor Morgan was denied by a brilliant save from Stirling's Chris Smith, but Morton fired into the bottom corner.

Sean Dickson and Salim Kouider-Aisser missed good chances to level.
