NEWS: Betfred Cup draw in full as Dundee United meet St Johnstone at group stage, Dundee prepare to face Hibs and Forfar, and Raith come up against Hearts

Recommended Posts

The Betfred Cup draw has set up another Tayside derby as Dundee United and St Johnstone were drawn together in Group C.

The Premiership duo – who met on the opening day of the 2020/21 season – will also face Brechin City, Kelty Hearts and Peterhead in the first stage of the tournament.

Meanwhile, James McPake will go head to head with his former club in Group B as Dundee take on Hibs, with the pair joined in their section by Forfar, Brora Rangers and Cove Rangers.

Dunfermline are alongside Kilmarnock, Clyde, Falkirk and Dumbarton in Group E while Raith Rovers take on Inverness Caley Thistle, Cowdenbeath, East Fife and Hearts in Group A.

Raith’s clash with the Jambos promises to be an intriguing encounter in the wake of the capital club’s legal action to halt their relegation to the Championship and, as a result, stop Rovers’ promotion from League One.

The Betfred Cup, which will be shown on Premier Sports, keeps its usual format of eight groups of five teams.

The last 16 is then made up of the eight group winners, four best runners-up and Scotland’s European representatives Celtic, Rangers, Motherwell and Aberdeen.

Group stage games are scheduled for:

Tuesday, October 6

Saturday, October 10
