Milestones
Magnus Sköldmark scored his first goal for the Club.
Neil Murray scored his first goal for the Club.

We gained a place in the quarter finals with this narrow victory over a First Division side which shaded the play territorially, but in terms of chances all the scoring was squeezed into a five minute period either side of the half-time whistle. Neil Murray, making his debut, put us ahead with a controlled volley from 25 yards, but Walker hooked home the equaliser shortly after the re-start. Magnus Skoldmark with his first ever goal for the club sent us through with a well taken header from Craig Easton's cross within three minutes of Ayr's goal.
