Ramsdens Cup: Annan 0-3 Stenhousemuir

Stenhousemuir cruised into the third round of the Ramsdens Cup on the back of an impressive win at Annan.

The visitors were in control right from the first whistle and Bryan Hodge's 30-yard shot had to be pushed around a post by goalkeeper Alex Mitchell.

Stewart Kean pounced to give the visitors a 25th-minute lead, latching on to John Gemmell's header to drive the ball into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Six minutes later, Stenhousemuir doubled their advantage when Sean Dickson clinically converted Darren Smith's pass from the left-hand side of the penalty area.

A convincing passage was secured on the hour-mark when Gemmell put in Andy Rodgers, who drove a 12-yard shot high into the net.
