“The boys did very well, especially in the second half. It was excellent, as good as we’ve played for a long time.

Lanark likely face a sterner test in round three of the tournament this Saturday when they host Premiership cracks Rossvale.

Craig added: “It will certainly be a more difficult game. But we played them last season in the Scottish Cup, drew and then lost by the odd goal in the replay.

“I hope we go one better this time. We’ll go into it with confidence. It’s not our main goal this year but any run in a cup does well for financial and confidence reasons.”
