Motherwell’s young loanees have been in action across the international break.
With Betfred Cup and Lowland League matches continuing, there was a chance for the four fit players to get valuable game time. Harry Robinson is currently injured.
The forward got a big goal for his club Greenock Morton in the Renfrewshire Derby match with St Mirren.
The game – the first of two Betfred Cup ties for the Ton – saw the player climb off the bench in the 60th minute and then score immediately to level the tie at 1-1.
He also scored his penalty in the shootout for a bonus point in the group stage fixture, but his side lost out 6-5.
Ross’ award would be a start in the crucial trip to face Partick Thistle in the final match, where a win could potentially send the Championship team through to the knockout stages.
However, a 0-0 draw and a loss in the shootout would ensure they finished fourth in their group.
A trip to Dundee in Cove Rangers’ penultimate group stage match would prove a stern test, even for a side flying high in League One.
Jamie played the first 45 minutes as his team went in 1-0 down at the break, before eventually succumbing to a 3-0 loss through two goals in the last five minutes.
An appearance from the bench with 25 minutes left would come next for the midfielder in their final home match with Forfar Athletic.
Rory McAllister’s penalty two minutes after Semple’s introduction would prove the difference, but Cove’s elimination from the competition was already secured.
A trip to face Falkirk – and come face to face with fellow loanee PJ Morrison – lies in wait this weekend.
Falkirk had one remaining Betfred Cup match over the international period – a trip to face fellow League One side Dumbarton.
Victory would put the Bairns in with the chance of progression to the knockout stages as an unseeded team and they did exactly that, routing the Sons 4-0.
The win would give PJ the clean sheet, to add to his penalty save in the 2-2 draw at Partick Thistle last weekend. And the reward for progression for Falkirk was a home tie with Rangers in the last 16.
A win and a defeat would come for Gretna 2008 in the Lowland League, defeating Caledonian Braves 5-0 away and then losing 1-0 at Civil Service Strollers.
Central defender Sam was an unused sub for the game against the Braves, before coming on for the last five minutes in the second match.
