HT: 2-0

The veteran striker drilled home from Jordan Marshall's corner and pounced on a rebound to make it 2-0 at the break.

John Rankin added to the lead with a tap in before Chris O'Neil pulled one back in the 75th minute.

Lyndon Dykes restored the hosts' three-goal cushion almost immediately, chipping goalkeeper Graeme Smith to put the game beyond doubt.
