Highlights - Hurlford United 1-1 Stirling Albion

Hurlford were denied a famous Scottish Cup victory as a late Stirling Albion goal forced a draw in Ayrshire.

The Scottish Junior Cup holders were pegged back by their 10-man visitors when Chris Smith headed in from a 78th-minute corner.

Stewart Kean put Hurlford ahead from six yards after Callum Reidford had spilled Steven Masterton's shot.

Kean missed two glorious chances from close range before Craig Wedderburn was dismissed for a second yellow card.
