Three City players in action

ATTACKING midfielder James Maddison reached the first cup final of his career on Saturday as Aberdeen defeated Greenock Morton in the Scottish League Cup semi-final at Hampden.

Second half goals from Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean secured a 2-0 victory, setting up a meeting with Celtic next month.

Maddison was substituted five minutes from time, with the Dons having now won their last six matches in all competitions.

Elsewhere in Scotland, Tony Andreu's Dundee United moved up to second in the Scottish Championship with a 2-1 win at home to Dumbarton.

An own goal from Dumbarton's Mark Docherty put the hosts in front, before defender William Edjenguele extended their lead.

Robert Thomson pulled a goal back for the visitors, but United held on to extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Back in England, a late Nicky Ajose penalty rescued Charlton Athletic a point in their Sky Bet League One game at Gillingham.

The home side had led from Bradley Dack's first half goal, before Ajose levelled in injury-time following Ricky Holmes' earlier penalty miss for the travelling Addicks.

Goalkeeper Declan Rudd played the full match, with Charlton having now drawn their last five away matches.

Finally, Remi Matthews and Harry Toffolo missed out for Hamilton Academical and Scunthorpe United respectively, with both City youngsters currently unavailable through injury.

Hamilton drew 2-2 at Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership, while Scunthorpe extended their lead at the top of Sky Bet League One to five points with a 3-0 win away to Chesterfield.
