East Stirlingshire 0-2 Raith Rovers

Raith Rovers advanced to the Scottish Cup fourth round thanks to a dominant display at Ochilview.

The Championship side created several decent first-half chances, the best of which fell to Paul Watson, who brought a good save out of Grant Hay.

East Stirlingshire's resistance ended in the 48th minute when Gordon Smith converted Callum Booth's pass.

With 10 minutes remaining, Michael McGowan put through his own net to end any hopes of a Shire comeback.
