Betfred Cup round-up

Review of Saturday's action on matchday five of the Betfred Cup...

Group A
Hearts topped the group despite being held to a 1-1 draw at East Fife, who won the shoot-out. The League 1 side will qualify as one of the best runners-up if there is a winner in Sunday's Dundee v Inverness CT game. Stenhousemuir beat Cowdenbeath 2-0 at Ochilview in the other game.

Group B
Ross County had already sealed first place and will be joined in the last 16 by Forfar Athletic, who shocked St Johnstone 2-1 at Station Park. Brechin City and Montrose drew 1-1 at Glebe Park, with the visitors winning the shoot-out.

Group C
Hibernian beat Elgin City 2-0 on Friday night to win the group. Arbroath would have gone through in second place with a win but lost 3-2 at home to Alloa Athletic.

Group D
Dundee and Inverness CT meet at Dens Park on a Sunday and a draw would send both through. Cove Rangers saw off Raith Rovers 3-0 at the Balmoral Stadium.

Group E
Motherwell beat Annan Athletic 4-0 at Fir Park to maintain their 100% record and Morton became the first runner-up to qualify with eight points - they drew 3-3 with Queen of the South at Cappielow then won the shoot-out.
