Bellshill booked a place in the last 32 of the Scottish Junior Cup with a fine 3-1 win over Dundee side Downfield at Fullarton Park on Saturday.

A Chris Dolan double, one from the penalty spot, and a Gary McGrath effort put Athletic through against a visiting side who were reduced to 10 men when ’keeper Kelly was red carded in the first half for conceding the penalty which put Belshill in front.

Smith pulled a goal back for the visitors later on but it wasn’t enough to stop Bellshill moving through to the fourth round.
