Auchinleck Talbot beat 10-man Fraserburgh 1-0 to book their place in the Scottish Cup fourth round.

The junior side scored through a Stephen Wilson goal after Fraserburgh's Bryan Hay was sent off.

The win sets up a home tie with fellow Ayrshire side Ayr United.

David Cox's goal was enough for Cowdenbeath to beat Brora Rangers and set up a tie with Steven Gerrard's Rangers, while Stenhousemuir shocked Falkirk 4-2 to net a trip to Aberdeen.

Conor McBrearty's double put the League One club in front after Paul Paton's early opener, before Falkirk restored parity with Joe McKee's 42nd-minute equaliser.

Sean Dickson put Stenny back in front on the hour mark and Mark McGuigan secured the victory with five minutes remaining.

Championship leaders Ayr United avoided an upset by sealing a 3-0 win over Beith Juniors.

Lawrence Shankland opened the scoring early in the second half before Ross Docherty and Michael Moffat eased any nerves for the Honest Men.

Rabin Omar, Brian Cameron, Kerr Hay and Owen Loveland grabbed the goals for League Two outfit Elgin.
