Mark Bradley’s side won the cup clash on penalties after a thrilling 3-3 draw at the end of 90 minutes to secure them a fourth round tie against either Livingston or Arniston Rangers at home.

The Rose coach said: “It was good to get the result in the end but we should have had the game done and dusted in the first half.

‘‘Prior to getting a player sent off and then giving away a penalty, we had been in control of the game.

‘‘We managed to take the lead again early on in the second half but we lost the plot for a period and allowed them back in to the game to score twice.”

Bradley was full of praise for his side, however, as they fought back to sneak a late equaliser.

He said: “It was a really well-taken goal and I thought the players showed a lot of determination to get themselves back into the game and take it to a penalty decider.”

With only one match remaining in the Super League, the Rose have no competitive fixture tomorrow (Saturday) but have instead arranged a friendly against a Queen’s Park reserve/under 19s side at Prestonfield, kick off 11am.

The Rose coach said: “It is good to get a Saturday friendly match as opposed to training or a midweek game.

‘‘The game will be a good contest for our players as the opposition will be young, fast and skilful and I see it as an ideal preparation for our match against Bo’ness next week.’’
