Speaking after the 1-0 win over the Broch, Horn said: "It was a sticky first half and they had to open up for the last 45 minutes but the players were solid at the back with both [Ewan Moyes] and Neil [Martyniuk] outstanding.

"We have to be very happy with afternoon’s work as we are in the 2nd round and that’s what we came here to do.”
