Stranrear & Morton Both Advance in Scottish Cup Replays

Stranrear earned a potentially lucrative tie against Premier League Motherwell after beating Stenhousemuir 4-3 in a thrilling Scottish Cup Replay. Behind after 17 minutes Stranrear battled back to lead 4-2 at one stage and looked comfortable, however a 90th minuter Stenhousemuir goal made for a slightly nervous finish. The game only attracted 521 fans, however the Motherwell game should boost the clubs finances somewhat more.

Morton had a fairly easy time of it at Airdrie United largely dominating possession and eventually running out comfortable 5-2 winners. The attendance here was 1,033. They will now travel to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the next round.

Both ties are scheduled for Saturday, 5 February 2011.
