FC Edinburgh put three past Cowdenbeath in Premier Sports Cup

FC Edinburgh ran out convincing 3-0 winners over Cowdenbeath in their Premier Sports Cup Group E fixture.

The Lowland League visitors were outplayed for large spells of the match at Meadowbank by Alan Maybury's men, who are looking to build momentum ahead of their League One opener at Kelty Hearts next Saturday.

John Robertson converted a 15th-minute penalty to put the hosts in front before the same player doubled his tally for the evening with a second going in off the post from close range.
