Raith too strong for East Stirling

Two second-half goals saw Raith advance to the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round as they beat East Stirling 2-0.

Gordon Smith netted three minutes after the restart and then an own-goal from Michael McGowan with 10 minutes remaining put the tie to bed.

It was an afternoon of dominance from the Scottish Championship side as they created several decent first-half chances, the best of which falling to Paul Watson, who brought a good save out of Grant Hay.

But East Stirling's resistance ended in the 48th minute when Smith was on hand to convert Callum Booth's pass.

And the game was made safe with 10 minutes to go when McGowan agonisingly put through his own net to complete a miserable afternoon for the League Two side.
