Alloa Athletic 4-0 Ayr United

Mark Docherty's double helped Alloa Athletic ease past Ayr United in their Scottish Cup third-round replay.

Liam Buchanan, who scored in the 1-1 draw at Ayr, slotted the opener this time after 24 minutes for his eighth goal in 18 appearances.

Daryll Meggatt doubled their lead four minutes later when he headed home Docherty's free-kick.

Docherty's cool finish extended the lead and he followed that up with a curler into the corner.

Alloa's reward for defeating the League One side is a home tie against Scottish Championship rivals Hibernian.
