Arbroath book plum tie
Two goals in as many minutes sent Arbroath on their way to a fourth-round tie with Celtic after picking up a 3-1 victory over Inverurie Locos in their William Hill Scottish Cup replay.
Fans had to wait until the 16th minute for the first meaningful opportunity of the match, but Steven Park was unable to find the target for the visitors with his 25-yard strike.
However, it was Arbroath who opened the scoring after 36 minutes, when Brian Kerr fired a sensational 30-yard effort into the bottom-left corner of the goal.
And the hosts were celebrating again just two minutes later after a close-range strike from Derek Holmes put one foot in the next round for Arbroath, before Steven Doris made it three just after half time with an effort from a similar distance.
Things got worse for the Locies when they saw Neil McLean dismissed for serious foul play, but Neil Gauld was able to pick up a last-minute consolation for the visitors as their cup campaign came to an end..
