Scottish Cup: Falkirk 4-1 Fraserburgh

Lee Miller scored a hat-trick as Falkirk made light work of Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup third round.

Miller headed in Blair Alston's corner but Mark Lawrence levelled midway through the second half.

Two goals in four minutes settled Falkirk's nerves as Will Vaulks headed home Craig Sibbald's cross and then Miller converted from close range.

Miller sealed his treble with a simple tap-in late on to send last season's finalists through.
