Scottish League Cup

Goals from Derek Holmes and Ryan Donelly gave Second Division Airdrie United victory over Raith Rovers in the Scottish Communities League Cup.

Raith came close when John Baird threatened early on but it was the hosts who broke the deadlock.

Holmes collected a pass from Jamie Stephenson and curled a left-foot shot home after 27 minutes.

Donnelly's drilled shot four minutes before the break doubled the lead and First Division Raith could not respond.
