Scottish Cup: Stirling Albion 6-0 Cumbernauld Colts

Steven Doris and Craig Beattie both scored twice as Stirling Albion cruised past Cumbernauld Colts and into the fourth round

Doris missed an early penalty but gave his side the lead shortly after.

Sean Dickson doubled the advantage before half-time, and the League Two side asserted their dominance after the break.

Doris added his second before Beattie's double and a Kyle Lander strike sealed a comfortable win for Albion.

The home side were gifted the chance to take an early lead when Doris was brought down in the box by Robbie Duncan.

The striker dusted himself down and stepped up confidently but his penalty rattled the underside of the crossbar.

Doris spurned another good chance shortly afterwards, looping a header inches over, before eventually putting Stirling ahead in the 15th minute, firing in from a goalmouth scramble.

The home side doubled their advantage after 23 minutes when Mark Lamont's corner from the right picked out Sean Dickson and he powerfully headed past goalkeeper Ross Doohan.

And it was 3-0 early in the second-half as Doris was played in by a weighted pass from Kevin McKinlay and coolly slotted home.

Doris made way for Beattie after 69 minutes and four minutes later the substitute scored, sweeping the ball into the bottom corner.

Kyle Lander added a fifth after Doohan could only parry a Lamont shot and Beattie grabbed his second of the game at the death with a simple finish.
