The Hibernian run in the Scottish League Cup is over for another year after the second round defeat against Queen of the South at Easter Road on Tuesday.

They’ll be no return to Hampden Park for the League Cup final this season as Hibs were knocked out in the second round as a lead was lost in a three-one defeat to Queen of the South.

Midway through the first half Hibs took the lead through a Paul Hanlon goal, which was taken through to half time.

Hibs’ lead was continued through until midway through the second half when substitute Dean Brotherson made the impact he was brought on for to equalise for Queens.

With the match heading towards extra-time two-goals in four-minutes in the final 10-minutes by Stephen Dobbie and Lyndon Dykes completed the comeback for the visitors who moved into the last eight.

Here’s a round up of the Scottish League Cup action from the other matches played, with some still to take place.

Round two results

Tuesday 9th August 2016 – Betfred Cup Second Round
Alloa 1-0 Inverness CT 19:30
Dundee Utd 3-1 Partick Thistle 19:45
Hamilton 1-2 Morton 19:45
Hibernian 1-3 Queen of Sth 19:45
Rangers 5-0 Peterhead 19:45

To be played

Wednesday 10th August 2016 – Betfred Cup Second Round
Ayr V Aberdeen 19:45
Celtic V Motherwell 19:45
St Johnstone V Hearts 19:45

Clearly the most emphatic win of Tuesday was Rangers’ five-nil thrashing of Peterhead at Ibrox to book a third round place with Dundee United also advancing with a three-one win over Partick Thistle.

It would probably be fair to say the Alloa (one-nil), Morton (three-one) and Queen of the South (three-one) wins over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Hamilton Academicals and Hibernian, respectively, can be classed as ‘upset’ wins can’t they?

Who was the MotM? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
