Meanwhile, Peterhead were on the end of a 6-0 drubbing by Raith Rovers on Wednesday night in the Premier Sports Cup.

The Blue Toon found themselves behind at the break, but Raith piled on the pressure in the second half with goals from Dylan Easton, Liam Dick, Jamie Gullan and Aidan Connolly, making it a miserable night for the 17 dedicated Peterhead fans who had made their way to Kirkcaldy for the midweek encounter.
