Dundee 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle: Danny Johnson fires hosts into last 16

Danny Johnson
Danny Johnson's debut goal sent Dundee through

Dundee set up a Scottish League Cup last-16 tie at home to Aberdeen as Inverness Caledonian Thistle exited.

A draw at Dens Park would have sent both Group D sides through but Dundee's victory, secured by a Danny Johnson debut goal, meant Inverness were pipped by Group A runners-up East Fife.

Inverness keeper Mark Ridgers was at fault for the goal, letting Johnson's near-post shot squirm past him.

In Group F, Queen's Park beat Clyde 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

New Dundee striker Johnson, who joined from Motherwell on Friday, enjoyed a lively debut and blazed over from close range early on before making amends with the 33rd-minute winner in a comfortable victory.

Inverness struggled to create any clear-cut chances against their Championship rivals as they meekly bowed out.

At Hampden, Clyde led through a first-half Darren Smith strike before Craig Howie's late own goal took the game to a shootout. Queen's Park finish second bottom of the section, three points above Clyde.
