Bonnyrigg Rose made it safely through but had to wait until the 90th minute before eventually killing off Highland League side Forres Mechanics.

The Lowland League leaders took the lead in the first period through Kieran McGachie but the hosts battled until the end before George Hunter’s late goal wrapped up a 2-0 victory for Robbie Horn's men.

Brora Rangers eased through with a 6-0 win over Tynecastle at Meggetland which included a Jordan Macrae hat-trick with the hosts left to rue a missed penalty when the score was still 1-0.
