Arbroath 2-4 Cowdenbeath

Cowdenbeath set up a Scottish Cup fourth round tie with Rangers at Ibrox after a 4-2 win over League Two side Arbroath.

Greig Spence and Liam Gallaghan's early goals were added to by a Dean Brett double before the break.

Bobby Linn scored a double either side of half-time for the hosts but it was not enough.

Saturday's original staging of the replay between Arbroath and Cowdenbeath was abandoned due to high winds.
