    Kilmarnock 4-2 Clyde

    Dom Thomas's double got Kilmarnock out of trouble as they kick-started their Betfred Cup campaign with a 4-2 win over Clyde.Killie were looking to bounce back from losing their Group E opener to local rivals Ayr but appeared in all sorts of trouble at Rugby Park when the Bully Wee responded to Rory McKenzie early strike with quick-fire goals from Darren Ramsay and Kevin Nicoll.But the League Two upstarts were denied a shock win when Thomas netted twice after the break.McKenzie then completed his own brace as Killie kept their quarter-final hopes alive while Clyde finished a man light after defender Jordan Stewart was sent off.The hosts thought they had got off to the perfect start when they struck just seven minutes in as McKenzie finished off a clever corner routine.But two minutes of madness put Kilmarnock in trouble.The first set-back came just three minutes after the opener when Kirk Broadfoot's slip-up left his team exposed, with Ramsay taking full advantage to lash home the equaliser.Clyde found themselves ahead 60 seconds later when Darren Miller's brilliant free-kick was headed home by the unmarked Nicoll.Home boss Lee McCulloch responded by sending on Chris Burke - signed just two hours before kick-off - for the start of the second period.But it was their summer signing from Motherwell who turned the gameFirst Thomas equalised with a clever drag back and finish after 53 minutes.And he put his team in front just before the hour mark when his long-range daisy-cutter skipped past goalkeeper Blair Currie into the bottom left corner.McKenzie added number four in the 68th minute when a loose ball broke to him in the box.Clyde's hopes evaporated completely moments later as Stewart received a straight red for lunging in on Adam Frizzell.ends

      Clyde 1-2 Kilmarnock

      Kilmarnock's debutants impressed at Broadwood as they saw off the challenge of Clyde in 2-1 win in the Betfred Cup.Soulaymane Coulibaly and William Boyle sealed the win for the away side, but they had goalkeeper Jamie McDonald to thank for saving a penalty with the score 0-0.Subsitute Jamie Watson volleyed home a late goal for Clyde but it was not enough as they slipped to defeat.The victory continues the re-building job for Lee Clarke's side, who earlier this month added 11 players on the same day.Clyde themselves have recruited heavily so far in this window, and handed starts to seven summer signings.And it was the home side who had the better of the opening exchanges. Striker Sean Higgins should have put the Bully Wee in front after 20 minutes, but flashed his effort just wide.For all of the home side's attacking threat, they looked exposed defensively with Kilmarnock guilty of wasting a number of first-half chances.The away side looked particularly threatening from set-pieces. Coulibaly - the summer signing from Peterborough - had efforts on goal but failed to capitalise on slack marking in the Clyde ranks.Clyde again got out of the traps quickest in the second half and were rewarded for their endeavour with a chance from the penalty spot.Away defender Boyle, making his first competitive start since joining from Huddersfield on loan, was the culprit, handballing Dylan Easton's shot.But McDonald spared the Englishman's blushes, saving from Scott Linton's tame effort.And Clyde were made to pay as the impressive Coulibaly back-heeled from five yards out to put Kilmarnock in front.Boyle atoned for his earlier error by doubling the away side's lead with 14 minutes to go, rising highest from a corner to head home at the back post.Watson gave the home side a lifeline with minutes remaining, impressively volleying home from a free-kick, but it was not enough as Kilmarnock held on.ends

        Bob McHugh earns Falkirk draw at Hibernian in play-off semi-final first leg

        Hibernian and Falkirk will play a winner-takes-all Ladbrokes Premiership play-off semi-final second leg after an entertaining 2-2 draw at Easter Road.Bairns striker Lee Miller gave the visitors a 33rd-minute lead when he inadvertently diverted in a Tom Taiwo drive.Alan Stubbs' side came storming out in the second half and levelled in the 57th minute though midfielder Liam Henderson before defender Darren McGregor, who had scored the crucial goal in the 2-1 aggregate win in the quarter-final against Raith, put the Leith side ahead with another thumping header.But Peter Houston's men refused to buckle and in the 79th minute substitute Bob McHugh, on for Miller, equalised with a shot which squirmed under Hibs goalkeeper Conrad Logan to set up a potentially thrilling game at the Falkirk Stadium.There was nothing cagey about the early stages of the game, although neither side could take control.In the 14th minute there was applause around the stadium in tribute to former Falkirk player Chris Mitchell, who died last Friday aged 27.Falkirk's goal came after Miller had been fouled by McGregor 25 yards from goal.Leahy's free-kick struck Hibs' defensive wall and spun to Taiwo and his drive from the edge of the box was redirected by the foot of Miller, with the home side erroneously claiming offside.Midfielder John McGinn went close with a drive at the start of the second half and moments later Anthony Stokes missed a great chance after being put through by Jason Cummings, the on-loan striker ballooning his shot over the bar with only Falkirk goalkeeper Danny Rogers to beat.There was little surprise when the home side drew level, Stokes heading into the path of his fellow Celtic loanee Henderson, who fired into the net from 12 yards.The momentum was with the hosts, and they took the lead when McGregor rose inside a packed six-yard box to bullet in a Henderson cross with his head.Hibs were well on top and there was a claim for a penalty when the prostrate Bairns skipper David McCracken appeared to put his hand on the ball after he and Rogers combined to thwart McGinn, but referee Alan Muir was not interested.There was more drama in the 79th minute when McHugh spun inside the box and drove at goal, with Logan making a mess of his attempted save and the ball trickling over the line - much to the dismay of the Hibs fans and the joy of those in dark blue.

          Clyde shrug off Barry Ferguson absence to claim first-leg win over Elgin

          Clyde took a 3-1 lead in the first leg of their Ladbrokes League One play-off semi-final with Elgin despite manager Barry Ferguson's absence.The former Scotland midfielder was in Switzerland to collect his UEFA Pro License following his successful completion of the course.Yet Ferguson played an important role in the win, having delayed naming his team to give Mark McLaughlin and John Gemmell a chance of being fit.Both scored, along with Scott Linton, for the Broadwood hosts with Kyle MacLeod grabbing a goal for the visitors, who have it all to do in Saturday's second leg.Clyde's Jordan Kirkpatrick twice shot wide of the target in the early stages before Gemmell, who like McLaughlin had limped off against Stirling in the previous game, gave the hosts a 19th-minute lead with a close-range finish.The Bully Wee continued to dominate, Gemmell unleashing another shot before Scott McLaughlin went close with a shot and Chris Smith had a header saved.With half-time approaching Linton doubled the lead, finding the top-right corner from a central position after David Gormley's pass.Dylan Easton had Elgin's first meaningful shot on goal and soon after the break MacLeod headed a goal for the visitors. The Black and Whites kept up the pressure with shots from Easton and MacLeod.Gormley forced Mark Hurst into a save to shift the momentum and, soon after, Mark McLaughlin nodded in from close range to restore a two-goal lead.Elgin responded with Connor McLaren's effort that missed on the right and Mark Nicolson's shot going over the bar, but Jim Weir's side could not pull another goal back.
