The high and lows of a striker

Kilmarnock 1-2 Motherwell

Kris Boyd walks off the Rugby Park pitch
SNS
What a day of mixed emotions for Kris Boyd. He scored his 200th league goal earlier in the match and in the final minute had the chance to earn his team a point against Motherwell and score his 100th league goal for Kilmarnock. However, he struck his penalty kick against the post.

'The players gave us everything'

Hibernian 3-1 Ayr United

Ayr United manager Ian McCall: "Young (Craig) McGuffie scored a goal-of-the-season contender. Scott (McMann) made an error (with his challenge) and that made it very hard for us to play against the holders with 10 men. Hibs deserved to win but there were moments of the match that went against us. The players gave us everything and the supporters were fantastic. We're out the cup and we're gutted about that. We had six players out today and now we have another two out."

Off the Ball part II

On Off the Ball's Saturday Supplement, Stuart and Tam's guests are journalist and broadcaster Graham Spiers and Hamilton midfielder Darian MacKinnon. The programme begins at 17:30.

Hibernian 3-1 Ayr United

Hibs' attempt to retain the Scottish Cup survives the challenge of Ayr United, who played for half the match with 10 men. They join Rangers in the last four of the tournament.

Hibernian 3-1 Ayr United

Ayr United's Greg Fleming falls to his knees at the near post to prevent a low drive from James Keatings crossing the line.

FULL-TIME

Kilmarnock 1-2 Motherwell

Plenty of late drama in this one as Zak Jules almost cancelled out his crucial goal by conceding a penalty. Kris Boyd was, however, unable to finish the spot-kick and Well escaped with a vital 2-1 victory.

MISSED PENALTY

Kris Boyd

With the chance to score his 100th Killie goal and his 201st top-flight goal, Kris Boyd smashes a spot-kick off the inside of the post. Well still lead.

CLOSE!

Hibernian 3-1 Ayr United

James Keatings goes close with a powerful left-foot drive from about 25 yards. The Ayr keeper had to move to his left quick style. Decent effort, that.

James Keatings

Hibs substitute James Keatings heads in off the underside of the crossbar with his first touch of the game from a David Gray cross.

Seems like game over for 10-man Ayr.

GOAL Queen of the South 0-2 Falkirk

Craig Sibbald

BBC Scotland at Palmerston

It looks like three points for Falkirk as Craig Sibbald rattles home their penalty kick after Nathan Austin had been fouled by Andy Dowie.

GOAL Dunfermline 4-0 Dumbarton

Nicky Clark

His old man, Sandy, will be proud of him. Nicky Clark scores a hat-trick of headers for the Pars.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Hibernian 2-1 Ayr United

Martin Boyle's chip finds the net off the underside of the bar, but the Hibs forward was offside.

GOAL Kilmarnock 1-2 Motherwell

Zak Jules

Motherwell hit the front in Ayrshire and it's centre back Zak Jules, who scored an own goal in last week's hammering by Dundee, who grabs the goal with a close-range downward header.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Kilmarnock 1-1 Motherwell

Kilmarnock's Gary Dicker arrives on to the ball as it break just outside the box and he drills a tremendous shout that bounces off the bar. Great technique to keep the ball down.

Honest Men defending well

Hibernian 2-1 Ayr United

Chick Young

BBC Scotland at Easter Road

It's all Hibs but still they nurse only the narrowest of leads against 10 men. Ayr can be proud of their defensive performance. 

GREAT SAVE!

Hibernian 2-1 Ayr United

Daryll Meggatt's mixed afternoon continues as the Ayr defender, who gave away a penalty but has had some vital interceptions since, slices as he attempts to clear a Martin Boyle cross to the front post and he has goalkeeper Greg Fleming to thank for beating the ball clear.

Queen of the South 0-1 Falkirk

Sandra Brown

BBC Scotland at Palmerston

Falkirk still in the lead at Palmerston but it's a very tight game and Queens are now pushing up in search of an equaliser.

Ten-man Ayr hanging in there

Hibernian 2-1 Ayr United

Daryll Meggatt does just enough to thwart Efe Ambrose, who was causing all sorts of mayhem in the Ayr box. Hibs' penalty scorer Jason Cummings then tries his luck from about 20 yards but it wafts wide.

Tables turned

Kilmarnock 1-1 Motherwell

Alasdair Lamont

BBC Sport Scotland

It's been a much-improved performance from Motherwell since the break and their fans are in good voice now that Carl McHugh has drawn them level. Their tails are now up and it's Kilmarnock's turn to look a little nervous.

Falkirk are still in front against Queens and indeed they could have been two goals up had it not been for Lee Robinson's one-handed save to stop Luke Leahy's deflected shot finding the corner of the net.

Kenny Crawford

Big Scott McKenna can have no complaints about the straight red card issued to him for that late, dangerous challenge on John McGinn as the Hibs midfielder surged through.

It's a blow for Ayr who, up until that point, had shown a real resurgence after the early barrage.

Pars could be further ahead

Dunfermline 2-0 Dumbarton

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland at East End Park

Dunfermline have certainly coped better with the heavy pitch and with a little more composure in front of goal this game could already have been over as a contest.

The pairing of Michael Moffat and Nicky Clark up front is paying off hugely for Alan Johnston's side with the added threat of Paul McMullan and Kallum Higginbotham on the flanks causing all sorts of problems for Dumbarton. 

The visitors were not helped after Dunfermline scored their second with Stuart Carswell and Mark Docherty clearly arguing on the pitch. It looked like Carswell just walked off and was hastily replaced by Sam Stanton.

Complacency could be an issue for the Fife club who had to rely on a wonderful save by Sean Murdoch from a Robert Thomson header to retain their two-goal advantage.
