West of Scotland Cup 1st Round

Rob Roy made a shock cup exit at the hands of First Division side Rutherglen Glencairn in a match which was devoid of atmosphere and skill.

The first chance fell to the visitors with McCarrie testing home keeper Robertson.

Ex-Rob Roy keeper Mark Wilson did well to block a Fulton lob then dived to his right to push a stinging Donnelly free-kick around the post.

Gormley should have put Rabs ahead but headed past when in a good scoring position before Wilson made another fine save from Lindsay.

McAlpine floated over a free-kick which caused problems to the home defence.

It fell to substitute Andrew who saw his shot blocked. The loose ball dropped for Scott but his side-footed attempt went inches wide of the post.

At the other end Easton sent Gormley through on goal but the striker managed to drag his shot wide.

With a penalty shoot-out the likely outcome, Glencairn took an 87th minute lead.

George Moore whipped over a free-kick from just inside the Rabs half into the home penalty area, it was met by Bret Agnew on the drop to send it high into Robertson’s net.

In a frantic Rob Roy finish some deep defending from the visitors and good goalkeeping from Wilson prevented the equaliser.

Rob Roy;- Robertson, McLachlan, McBride, Cairney (Mackie 69), McAleenan, Donnelly, MacKay, Fulton, Gormley, J Lindsay (Carter 32), Easton. Unused Subs;- Lochhead, Reddon.
