Scottish Cup: Cove Rangers ease to win at Fort William

Scottish Cup trophy

Cove Rangers set up a Scottish Cup third round visit to Highland League rivals Formartine United with a comfortable 4-0 win at Fort William.

Daryl Nicol converted an early penalty, with Jamie Watt and Johnny Smith adding goals before half time.

A whopping 33 points separate unbeaten league leaders Cove Rangers and perennial strugglers Fort William.

And that gulf was underlined when Smith knocked in his second of the evening late in the game.
