Scottish Football League

Raith came from behind to beat nine-man Montrose in the League Cup first round.

Montrose had gone ahead after 20 minutes thanks to Jamie Winter's 25-yard drive.

But goals from Iain Williamson, Allan Walker, John Baird and Danny Thompson completed a terrific comeback for the Kirkcaldy side.

Montrose's fate was sealed when Jonathan Smart and Steven McNalley were both ordered off in the second half.
