The Scottish Cup third round saga between Linlithgow Rose and Wick Academy goes on after the Highland League team snatched a late, late draw at home last night.

The tie, which was being played at the fifth time of asking, was heading the way of Rose after they twice went ahead through Colin Strickland and Kevin Kelbie.

But, in the third minute of added on time, David Allan equalised for the home team to set up a replay in West Lothian.

Strickland opened the scoring for the visitors after 27 minutes but Wick drew back level from the penalty spot 14 minutes later.

Rose came out in the second half determined to make sure the long trip was worthwhile and Kelbie notched what looked like being the winner after 50 minutes.
