Scottish Cup round-up

If Firhill staged a battle of the first division heavyweights, The Haughs was the venue for a classic David and Goliath clash which only just failed to follow the giant-killing script.

However, Turriff United emerged with all the plaudits from their 1-1 draw with Morton. The Highland League side certainly rode their luck at times but surely dared to dream that a real upset was on the cards when co-manager Mark Simpson put them ahead.

He was on hand to shoot through a ruck of players after Derek Gaston, under heavy pressure, failed to get a strong enough fist on a corner.

Peter Weatherson, who had twice struck woodwork, threw Morton a lifeline with a goal on the stroke of half-time.

The first division side piled on the pressure on the restart but to no avail. Cameron Bowden and Craig Reid were both red-carded following a late clash.
