Have your say

Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale and Peebles Rovers played out a six-goal thriller in Qualifying League Cup Group Section B last night

Darren Smith, Scott Moffat and Liam O’Donnell were all on target for the Capital side at Whitestone Park in the 3-3 draw, with Paul Murray, Chris Taylor and John Ross Kerr on target for John O’Hara’s Peebles side as they secured their first point of the group.

Craigroyston were 2-1 winners over Hawick Royal Albert as Andrew Brown secured his first win in charge as manager of The St Mark’s Park outfit in the other Group B match at Albert Park last night.

Steven Moncur netted both goals for Craigroyston despite Nicky Rendall receiving his marching orders, with goalkeeper Sean Smith saving a Hawick penalty.

In Group D, holders Leith Athletic made it two wins out of two with a 2-0 victory over Heriot-Watt University at Meadowbank 3G, but there was disappointment for Ormiston as they crashed 3-0 to Coldstream at Woodside Park.
