Kilmarnock and Queen of the South have secured their place alongside Hamilton in the quarter-finals of the SPFL Trust Trophy after comfortable wins last night.
Goals from Oli Shaw, Euan Murray and Callum Hendry booked Killie’s place in the next round although there was a brief scare when Grant Gillespie scored from the penalty spot to draw level following Shaw’s opener at Rugby Park.
That sets up a clash between Tommy Wright’s side and Hamilton who were too clinical for Aberdeen B earlier in the week, leaving Rangers B as the last Colt team in the SPFL Trust Trophy for the second season in succession.
Second-half goals from Lee Connelly and Ally Roy were enough for the Doonhamer’s to secure their last-eight spot with a win over Partick at Palmerston, setting up a clash with Montrose or Morton.
Four of the remaining five games take place this afternoon with Raith Rovers hosting East Fife at Stark’s Park, Montrose hosting Morton, Albion Rovers making the trip to Aberdeen to face Cove Rangers and Elgin City welcoming Championship leaders Inverness Caley Thistle.
Alloa Athletic are also scheduled to face Rangers B but at the Indodrill but that won’t take place until October 27 due to internationals and Rangers’ participation in the UEFA Youth League.
