EDINBURGH CITY crashed out of the East of Scotland Qualifying Cup, losing their third-round tie with East Kilbride on penalties.

Ross Allum went close on the half hour mark but his headed effort crashed off the bar. Just after the interval Kilby were awarded a penalty when Shaun Harrison was adjudged to have barged Gavin Lachlan, but Andrew Stobie dived to save Martin McBride’s spot kick. City immediately counter-attacked and Dougie Gair’s shot was blocked by the legs of Jacob Kean. In the penalty shoot-out, Allum was unlucky to hit the bar from the spot before Kean saved Ian McFarland’s penalty to put the visitors through to the next round.
