Scottish Cup: Queen's Park 1-1 Forfar Athletic

An overhead kick from Danny Denholm secured Forfar Athletic a Scottish Cup third-round replay against Queen's Park.

The visitors went close to opening the scoring when Martyn Fotheringham's free-kick hit the crossbar.

Queen's Park made the breakthrough on the half-hour mark, Chris Duggan giving goalkeeper Rab Douglas no chance with a right-footed 25-yard shot.

But Denholm's acrobatic effort left Spiders keeper Willie Muir helpless.

The hosts then appealed for a penalty but referee John McKendrick was unmoved when David Galt went down in the box before Douglas brilliantly denied Duggan from close range.
