Albion Rovers 2-4 Falkirk

Scottish Football League

Summer signing Farid El Alagui scored twice as Falkirk overcame Albion Rovers to move into the second round of the Scottish Communities League Cup.

El Alagui rifled home Craig Sibbald's cross from inside the six-yard box, but Scott Chaplain equalised from the spot after Rhys Bennett handled.

Jay Fulton scored from close range after being set up by El Alaqui.

El Alaqui steered in his second, Kallum Higginbotham tapped in the fourth before Chris Boyle's powerful reply.
