Forfar triumphed on penalties to settle a thrilling clash against Brechin and set up a Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at home to St Johnstone.

Andy Jackson fired Brechin ahead but Chris Templeman headed the hosts level.

City led again when Alan Trouten converted a penalty before Gavin Malin equalised in the 85th minute.

Brechin hit first in extra time through Allan Walker, only for Templeman to score and force a penalty shoot-out, where Forfar were victorious.
