Berwick Rangers 1-3 Dumbarton

Dumbarton booked their place in the last 16 of the Scottish Cup for the first time in 29 years with a convincing win away to Berwick Rangers.

The Championship side found themselves 1-0 down following Lee Currie's well-struck free-kick early on.

But Bryan Prunty equalised from the penalty spot after Stephen Tulloch handled and Mitchell Megginson fired the Sons ahead before the break.

And Scott Linton added a third 10 minutes after the restart.

Berwick goalkeeping coach Gary O'Connor had been poised to play as on-loan regular number one Paul Grant was refused permission to play from parent club Hibernian.

But Billy Bald had been pressed into action after his recovery from a recent leg operation, but he was unable to deny the in-form Sons.

Kevin Smith also hit a post as Dumbarton came close to extending their lead.

Berwick Rangers player-manager Ian Little: "We can't complain about the penalty. It's maybe a bit soft, but the free-kick before it - be big, be strong, make the decision.

"It's a free-kick, and I think it just changes the game."

Dumbarton player-manager Ian Murray: "It probably was handball, but it's hard because no-body knows what's a penalty and what's not a penalty, it's up to the referee.

"If it's against my team I'm not happy, but we were screaming for it on the sidelines."
