Stranraer 1-0 Falkirk

Anthony Marenghi scores for Stranraer against Falkirk
Marenghi struck shortly before half-time to send Stranraer through

Anthony Marenghi's first-half strike took League One Stranraer through to the Scottish Challenge Cup semi-finals at the expense of Falkirk.

Marenghi's shot from Craig Malcolm's cross took a deflection on its way past goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald.

Craig Sibbald passed up three opportunities, hitting the bar one occasion, as Championship side Falkirk tried to force a leveller.

And the Bairns' Luke Leahy was denied by a fine David Mitchell save.
