  1. Until Sunday...

    Well, three games ended 7-0 and two went to penalties. Hopefully the fans were entertained. We'll be back tomorrow for Dundee United's match against Dunfermline, where the winner will go through to the last 16. Indeed, a draw will be enough for United. The draw for the last 16 follows the Sunday action. Have a great evening.

  2. 'Huffed and puffed'

    Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark: "We've huffed and puffed. We have lots of work to do and we have to dust ourselves down. Players select themselves and they deselect themselves. We are still very confident and we still believe in one another."

  3. 'Terrific start' to Peterhead's season

    Peterhead manager Jim McInally: "We had three penalty kicks to win that and we missed them. It must have been a terrific game for a neutral to watch. We looked out on our feet but we never gave in, we went at it again and up until the last 5-10 minutes I thought we played well. I knew we had two ways of doing this today - win the game or win on penalties. I think two of our penalties are away down to Alexandria by now! The format gets you up to speed, that's for sure. I think it's £26,000-£30,000 we get now. It's been a terrific start."

  4. We have 15 of the 16

    So there we have it. Rangers, Peterhead, St Johnstone, Inverness CT, Alloa, Partick Thistle, Hamilton and Morton go through as group winners.

    Motherwell, Queen of the South and Ayr United go through as the best runners-up, plus either Dunfermline or Dundee United from Group C. They play tomorrow.

    Alloa, Partick Thistle, Rangers and Morton will be seeded in the draw for the last 16 along with the four European representatives who are joining the competition - Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibernian.

  5. Can Dark Blues keep Stewart?

    Dundee manager Paul Hartley: "It's going to be a tough league this year. All the preparation begins for Ross County. It's a tough away game. We want to push for the top six but it's not going to be easy. I've got a good group and I think we're entertaining to watch. Greg Stewart is such a terrific player for us. If we've got him at the end of the transfer window, terrific. Bigger clubs are going to come and watch your players."
