Goals: Cove beat Formartine in cup

Cove Rangers secured a home Scottish Cup fifth-round tie against Falkirk as they overcame fellow Highland League side Fromartine United.

Cove had the better early chances, Archie MacPhee, Jamie Masson and Ryan Strachan all firing over.

They took the lead as Ryan Stott rammed home a superb left-foot shot after being set up by Mitchel Megginson.

Jonathan Crawford headed Formartine's best chance over before Megginson scored his 35th goal of the season.

Highland League leaders Cove are currently playing all their home games at away grounds while they await a move to a new stadium.

They will play Falkirk, eighth in the Championship, on the weekend of 10-11 February.
