Match report: Forfar Athletic 3 - 0 Stranraer

Forfar Athletic booked a mouthwatering home fourth-round tie with Aberdeen with a comfortable 3-0 win in the replay against Stranraer at Station Park.

With the prospect of hosting the seven-times winners of the competition in the next round, it was not entirely surprising that the opening period was tense with clear-cut chances at a premium.

A ferocious wind was also not conducive to entertaining football but the home fans eventually had something to cheer in the 67th minute when Greg Ross powered the ball home from close range.
