Linlithgow Rose became the first Junior side to ever make the last 16 of the Scottish Cup after they defeated Forfar Athletic 1-0 at Station Park in their fourth-round replay.

The East Super League side, who drew 3-3 with their League One counterparts in the original tie before last week’s replay was abandoned due to floodlight failure, will now face Ross County in the fifth round.

They earned their trip to Dingwall to face the Premiership outfit with a battling performance. The match finished 0-0 in regulation time and with a penalty shoot-out looming, Kevin Kelbie struck on 115 minutes to send Rose into the next round.
