Arbroath 2-1 Nairn County

A first-half penalty from Paul McManus and a Scott McBride strike ensured Arbroath progress in the Scottish Cup.

McManus set them on their way on 22 minutes after Simon Murray was felled inside the area by Wayne Mackintosh.

Calum Antell made several good saves for the visitors, who had a goal disallowed in the second half and were soon two down as McBride headed home.

Sean Webb scrambled home a late goal for the Highland league side but they were unable to draw level.
