Falkirk followed last week's Ramsdens Cup win over Clyde with a Scottish League Cup victory against the same opposition.

Blair Alston fired in from close range to give the Bairns the lead as the match neared its final quarter-hour.

A fine strike from the edge of the area by Philip Roberts doubled Falkirk's lead.

And Thomas Grant's emphatic finish rounded off a comfortable win for the hosts.
