East Stirlingshire 2-1 Livingston

Homecoming Scottish Cup

East Stirling caused a Scottish Cup shock with a third round victory over First Division side Livingston.

The hosts took the lead on nine minutes through Eddie Forrester's volley.

Livi levelled with a bizarre goal after 39 minutes. Liam Fox's speculative 35-yard shot caught the home defence by surprise and ended up in the net.

Shire grabbed the winner 10 minutes into the second half when Brian Graham cut in from the left and curled a spectacular effort into the far corner.
