Dundee United v Alloa Athletic

Holders Dundee United are hosting Alloa Athletic in the Irn Bru Challenge Cup this afternoon.

United will be looking for an immediate response after their disappointing 3-0 league defeat at St Mirren last week.

However, they've already accounted for Cowdenbeath 2-0 in the first round of the competition through striker Patrick N'Koyi's second-half brace.
