Betfred League Cup 2018-19

The draw was made on Friday night for the group stage of the Betfred League Cup.

This is for the all SPFL teams, plus the Highland and Lowland League winners, but the four teams who have qualified for UEFA first team competition get a bye to the second stage.

We were seeded and have been drawn in Group F with Livingston, Berwick Rangers, Airdrieonians and Annan Athletic.

We will of course face Livingston in the league this season following their victory over Partick Thistle to be come only the second team to come up from the Championship, after ourselves, in the current play off format.
