Linlithgow Rose 3-3 Forfar Athletic

Ten-man Linlithgow Rose fought back from two goals down to claim a Scottish Cup replay against Forfar Athletic.

Michael Travis headed Forfar ahead but Ruari MacLennan struck for the hosts.

Gary Thom was sent off for fouling Scott Martin in the box and Iain Campbell converted the resulting penalty before Gavin Swankie netted.

However, the junior side got level again through goals in quick succession from Jamie MacKenzie and Graham Weir and will visit Forfar on 19 January.
