Aberdeen progressed to the third round of the Scottish Communities League Cup with a hard-fought 2-0 extra-time victory over Morton at Cappielow.

Gavin Rae steered a header home four minutes into the second period of extra-time and Scott Vernon tapped in from close range five minutes later to put the game out of Morton's reach.

The Irn-Bru First Division side were more than a match for their Clydesdale Bank Premier League opponents and can consider themselves unlucky not to have at least forced penalties, having enjoyed the better chances during the opening 90 minutes.
