Brechin City 4-2 Annan Athletic

Andy Jackson hit a first-half hat-trick as Brechin booked a trip to Falkirk in the Scottish Cup fifth round by beating Annan in their replay.

City were three up within half an hour as Jackson, 26, headed in a Ewan McNeil cross, fired home a second and latched on to a Bobby Barr pass for his third.

Scott Davidson managed to pull one back for Annan after 68 minutes.

But Colin Hamilton's headed fourth for Brechin meant David Hopkirk's 76th-minute finish was a mere consolation.
