Rory McAllister scored all five goals as Peterhead stunned Falkirk in the Petrofac Training Cup.

A volley from David Smith and a header from Paul Watson had the Championship side in front before a McAllister lob.

And the League One side were ahead at the interval after a tap-in and a deft angled finish from the striker.

Alex Cooper came off the bench to nod in an equaliser but McAllister powered in a fantastic long-range effort and tucked in a late penalty kick.
