The competition continues on Thursday with three clashes in League Two.

Heriot’s will go into their home meeting with Edinburgh Accies full of confidence having won two matches at the weekend.

On Sunday they backed up Saturday’s top-flight victory over Watsonians by seeing off Stuart&Stuart Penicuik in the Citylets Scottish Cup.

Penicuik are in action also, hosting Watsonians at Kirkhill. The latter defeated Arbroath in the Scottish Cup thanks to 74 not out from Andrew Chalmers.

And Marchmont are at Cavalry Park against RH Corstorphine, the former having battled hard despite losing to Ferguslie in the Scottish Cup.

All Masterton matches start at 6pm.
