CALUM FERGUSON netted a priceless last-minute goal to earn ten-man Albion Rovers a lucrative fourth-round tie at home to Celtic.

Ferguson earned a yellow card for his excessive celebrations as he sealed a shock 2-1 win over Queen of the South at Cliftonhill, but he did not care.

Mick Dunlop had given Rovers a 16th-minute lead when he headed home a Scott McBride corner. 

But Queens hit back towards half-time. The ever-dangerous Stephen Dobbie shot narrowly wide before Chris Higgins saw a header come back off the crossbar. 

Jamie Hamill finally found the net with 14 minutes left when he headed home a Dobbie corner.

Albion were reduced to ten men with three minutes left when Ryan Wallace picked up his second yellow card in seven minutes, but then came Ferguson’s match-winner.

Ayr United secured a place in the fourth round with a 1-0 win over Brechin City at Glebe Park.

Ayr had the better of the first half but could not find a way past Graeme Smith.

Andy O’Connell was denied on three occasions by the goalkeeper but Ayr had Greg Fleming to thank for keeping them level early in the second half when he blocked an Ally Love header.

But it was Ayr who made the breakthrough with 20 minutes left and it was no surprise that O’Connell was the scorer, steering the ball into the net with his left boot for the winner.

East Fife and Edinburgh City fought out a 1-1 draw at New Bayview. City took a 39th-minute lead when Ross Guthrie released Ousman See and he lashed the ball past Ryan Goodfellow into the corner.

City were unfortunate not to grab a second goal four minutes into the second half when See cut the ball back for Marc Laird but his shot hit the post. 

East Fife were level in 65 minutes. when Jason Kerr, who had come on as a substitute two minutes earlier, looped a header over Andy Stobie with his first touch of the ball.

Queen’s Park will face Ayr in round four after beating Montrose 2-0. The Spiders took the lead after 15 minutes when Montrose failed to deal with a corner and David Galt shot home.

Paul Woods, who had a hand in the opening goal, put the home side 2-0 in front after 54 minutes with a right-foot shot from 20 yards which proved enough to secure the win.
