Alloa Athletic 3-2 Stirling Albion

Alloa beat local rivals Stirling Albion in a five-goal Scottish Cup thriller.

Jordan White's early header put the visitors ahead but they soon had Sandy Cunningham sent off for serious foul play.

Ryan McCord's penalty, awarded after Kieran McAnespie had fouled Jonathan Tiffoney, levelled the match and Graeme Holmes nodded Alloa in front.

Jason Marr's strike extended the hosts' lead before Graham Weir's effort pulled a goal back for Albion late on.

And Alloa will be in Monday's draw for the fifth round.
