City more than matched their Championship opponents, who had defeated Premiership side St Mirren and Albion Rovers in the past six days. James McDonaugh's men, meanwhile, lost out to Saints' Oan Djorkaeff's 88th-minute penalty in their group opener on Wednesday night.

With East Kilbride and Albion Rovers left to play, the former on Tuesday night, City now have a top-two finish in their sights.
