Alloa manager Paul Hartley will return to Aberdeen in the second round of the Scottish League Cup following the draw made by former Scotland players Pat Nevin and Tosh McKinlay.

The Pittodrie date will be the first meeting between the sides since the Dons won their 2010 meeting at Recreation Park 3-0.

That night, it was Hartley who opened the scoring for Aberdeen from the penalty spot in a game that was marred by an injury to Fraser Fyvie.

Hartley also scored in the next round in a 3-2 victory over Raith Rovers and then hit a double to defeat Falkirk as Aberdeen reached the semi-final stage, where they were comprehensively beaten 4-1 by Celtic.

The former Scotland international had taken yesterday afternoon to play golf. However, Alloa secretary Ewan Cameron said: “It is a tough tie, especially away from home, but it is one we will look forward to. I am sure Paul will enjoy going back to Aberdeen where he is extremely highly thought of.

“One thing for sure is that Aberdeen will be facing a very well-organised side. Paul will make sure of that.”

Forfar’s reward for defeating Rangers is an away tie against Dundee.

Station Park boss Dick Campbell said: “We played them in a pre-season friendly and also met them in a Ramsdens Cup tie the week before. John Brown and I will have no surprises left for each other by this meeting.”

The highest seeds, Dundee United, travel to Dumbarton while Hearts head for Kirkcaldy in an exciting-looking tie – former Tynecastle forwards Calum Elliot and Gordon Smith are in the Stark’s Park ranks. Falkirk host a derby encounter with Dunfermline.
