Culter co-manager Andy Gibson was delighted to see his side progress to the 4th round of the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup after almost three months of trying.

Gibson said he was proud of the players especially after the blow of losing two early goals.

He said: “It was a great win, especially as we were 2-0 down after the first 20 minutes.

“George McBain got a goal back before half time to get us back in it, then Lewis Mckimmie scored to make it 2-2 after the break.

“Lewis was then clean through on the keeper but collided with the keeper and was unfortunately carried off with a knee injury.

“Alfie Youngson scored direct from a free kick and we looked comfortable, but lost a late goal to make it 3-3 which was disappointing.”

Culter also had to deal with the injury to their goalkeeper in the closing minutes, which looks to have ruled him out for a few weeks.

“Andy Mcintosh dived at the feet of their striker in the last minute and broke a bone in his arm so he had to come off, our substitute goalkeeper, John Farquhar, came on and the game went straight to penalties.

“We scored all five and John saved one, it was a great win but I’m disappointed with the injuries to Andy and Lewis.”

Gibson is confident his side can go even further. He said: “We don’t know too much about Ardrossan but they beat Longside 2-0 in the 2nd round. We will go down with a bit of confidence after the Broxburn games.”
