Ross McNeil scored twice as Stenhousemuir overcame Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

The competition's last remaining Highland League side held their League One opponents for over an hour and had been the better side in the first half.

But McNeil curled a shot home to open the scoring 18 minutes into the second half.

McNeil added a second from close range and Errol Douglas slotted in the hosts' third.

Stenhousemuir manager Martyn Corrigan: "Fraserburgh started bright. I'd probably say the first half they were the better team.

"They made it very hard for us to get the ball down and play. We went to long ball, and we're the sort of team that needs to get the ball down and play."

Fraserburgh manager Kris Hunter: "I gambled at the end. I put Russell [McBride] up top, went three at the back, and it cost us two goals. But we had to try and get something out of the game and get a replay.

"But it was very harsh on the players. They probably had three of four attempts on goal when we've had five or six, but I'm very proud of the players."
