Scottish Football League

Livingston waltzed through to the second round of the League Cup after hammering Arbroath.

New signing Rory Boulding opened the scoring before Iain Russell grabbed a brace, and Keaghan Jacobs converted Bobby Barr's cross.

The rout continued in the second half when Jason Talbot and Marc McNulty added to Arbroath's problems.

And their misery was complete when Steven Doris was sent off for violent conduct after clashing with Jacobs.
