Heart of Midlothian were last night beaten in heartbreaking circumstances as a late own-goal undid all their good work at Tynecastle.
Hearts were impressive all night and made life difficult for their Premier League opponents with manager John McGlynn feeling it was an unfair result in the end.
"I think the least we deserved was a draw. The players' effort, discipline and the way they went about the game deserved a draw,” he said.
"It was a bit cruel to lose the goal in such a manner as well. It was a cruel blow.
"There were a lot of positives to take from the Hearts team tonight.''
Ahead of the return leg at Anfield next week, McGlynn added: "It's only 1-0 so you never know.
"We've got another game on Sunday against Aberdeen so if we can put in a good performance and get a good result, we would go down to Anfield with confidence.
"We are kind of out of it so we've got nothing to lose.''
