Stranraer 2-2 Dunfermline Athletic

A last-gasp header from Craig Malcolm ensured Stranraer a Scottish Cup fourth round replay against Dunfermline.

Midfielder Andy Geggan put the visitors in front after 14 minutes when he out-jumped goalkeeper David Mitchell to the ball from Lewis Martin's free-kick.

Dunfermline made it two in the 61st minute when Ross Millen's free-kick was headed in by defender Gregor Buchanan.

William Gibson's long-range effort found the Pars' net with 10 minutes to go before Malcolm's injury-time goal.
