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.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
