    St Johnstone 2-0 Stenhousemuir

    St Johnstone ensured there would be no shock as they pieced together a comfortable 2-0 Scottish Cup victory over Stenhousemuir.First-half goals from Steven MacLean and Blair Alston killed off any hopes the visitors had of springing a surprise and the Premiership hosts cruised to victory.The League One strugglers will have been pleased to have put up a fight in the second period but there was never any real danger of Saints losing their grip on the tie and progressing to the fifth round.Stenhousemuir, currently second bottom of League One, suffered the worst possible start when Saints took the lead after just five minutes.Chris Millar delivered a pinpoint cross from the right edge of the box and MacLean ghosted away from his marker all too easily to head in from six yards.A Danny Swanson drive that drifted inches past in the 20th minute was the closest St Johnstone came before they added a second in the 32nd minute.Graham Cummins flicked on a high ball for strike partner MacLean and the opening goalscorer's back-heel teed up Alston to fire in from the edge of the box.Cummins should have added a third in the 70th minute as Stenhousemuir's resistance at the start of the second half began to wane.Alston's low cross from the right was perfect for the Irishman but somehow he scooped his shot wide from just six yards.David Wotherspoon saw a 20-yard drive deflected wide as St Johnstone looked to put some gloss on their win.Manager Tommy Wright introduced Liam Craig and Chris Kane in search of some fresh impetus as the game limped towards full-time.However, with Alston's injury-time volley being deflected over and Kane's shot on the turn being booted off the line, Stenhousemuir earned credit when they saw out the tie without conceding again.ends

      Strugglers Stenhousemuir stun promotion-chasing Airdrie in 5-0 thrashing

      Bottom-placed Stenhousemuir stunned 10-man Airdrieonians 5-0 in the promotion-chasers' back yard in Ladbrokes Scottish League 1 on Saturday.The visitors forged ahead when Willis Furtado collected a poor Joe Gorman clearance and converted at the back post.Within a couple of minutes, David Marsh headed in a second from Alan Cook's free-kick.Matters worsened for the Diamonds when Daniel Boateng was sent off for a second yellow and from the free-kick Cook steered the ball into the bottom corner.Marsh netted from another dangerous Cook free-kick as Stenhousemuir pushed on after the interval. Carlos Martinez then fairly danced through the home defence to cap a staggering outcome.Leaders Livingston capitalised by extending their lead at the top to four points with a 2-1 win at Stranraer.Willie Gibson opened the scoring for Brian Reid's men after just five minutes with a rapier free-kick strike. Livi had to wait until the last 13 minutes to square things up, but Dale Carrick eventually nodded in from Joshua Mullin's cross.David Hopkin's men showed why they are top with a late winner as Raffaele De Vita was picked out by Joshua Mullin at the back-post.Peterhead and Alloa shared the honours in a 1-1 draw at Balmoor. The game came alive at the three-quarter mark when Fiacre Kelleher put the Blue Toon in front. Jordan Kirkpatrick levelled with 15 minutes left from a Jon Robertson ball.Queen's Park responded to a very early setback to prevail 2-1 at home to Albion Rovers.Striker Ross Stewart shot the Wee Rovers in front after just three minutes with a close range redirection from a Ross Gilmour cross.Ross Millen however levelled from the spot, and Paul Woods scored the winner with a long-range snapshot that goalkeeper Ross Stewart fumbled in. In the evening kick-off, Scott Robinson scored and was later sent off as East Fife boosted their survival hopes with a 1-0 win at play-off chasing Brechin, who saw Elliot Ford dismissed at the death.
