    On Sunday, Sierra Leone International Amadou Bakayoko made his Dundee debut in their 1-0 win over Inverness CT in the Scottish Viaplay Cup qualifier.

    Despite the win, they were knocked out of the Scottish Viaplay Cup at the Kilmac Stadium. Dundee’s Zach Robinson scored the winning goal after an hour. 

    The Dee’s new acquisition, Bakayoko, was introduced in the 46th minute to replace Scott Tiffoney. However, despite his presence, they were unable to find the second goal that would have taken them through to the last 16.

    Bakayoko, however, thrilled the watch fans after his 18 yards shot that was saved by Ridgers prevented him from claiming a debut goal with a fierce rising shot. 

    The single-goal margin of victory meant the Dark Blues were pipped by Raith Rovers, who had the same goal difference but scored one more goal.

    Inverness, who were already out of the running for the last 16, had been the better side for long spells and threatened through Billy Mckay and Austin Samuels.

    THE DRAW FOR THE LAST 16 OF THE VIAPLAY CUP IS AS FOLLOWS:

    Hibernian v Raith Rovers

    Stirling Albion v Aberdeen

    Airdrieonians v Ross County

    St Mirren v Motherwell

    Rangers v Greenock Morton

    Kilmarnock v Celtic

    Heart of Midlothian v Partick Thistle

    Livingston v Ayr United

    Ties are to be played the weekend of August 19/20 and are subject to TV selections.
