Ten-man Dundee became the latest Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League scalp to be claimed in the Scottish Communities League Cup after losing 2-1 against Queen's Park at Hampden.

Sean Burns grabbed the winner for the Irn-Bru Third Division side after a Jamie Longworth penalty had cancelled out Steven Milne's early opener, as Neil McGregor saw red for the visitors.

Kilmarnock, Hibernian and Ross County were all dumped by lower league opposition on Tuesday night and their fate was shared by Dundee, who were without four of their new signings for the second-round tie.

Fellow SPL side St Mirren cruised through to the third round with a comfortable 5-1 win over Ayr United.

Lewis Guy raced on to Paul McGowan's slide-rule pass to open the scoring after 16 minutes and Steven Thompson doubled the hosts' lead on the half-hour mark.

A wonderful individual effort from McGowan stretched the Paisley side's advantage to three before Kenny McLean added a fourth from the penalty spot.

The visitors pulled one back through Michael Moffat six minutes before the break but the Clydesdale Bank Premier League side added a fifth through Gary Teale in the second half.

An Andrew Shinnie double ensured Inverness progressed with a 2-0 victory over Second Division Arbroath.

Caley Thistle had exited this competition at the same stage last year with a 1-0 defeat to Ayr - but Shinnie eased the nerves with a seventh-minute goal, before putting the result out of Arbroath's reach 19 minutes from time.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
