The Warriors were almost in tomorrow’s William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round draw, but a late strike for Annan salvaged a draw and forced a replay at Galabank.
John Gemmell and Errol Douglas had overturned Martin McNiff’s earl;y opener for Annan but a late leveller forces the return meeting for Martyn Corrigan’s men.
Ochilview also played host to East Stirlignshire’s home tie with Raith Rovers but though Shire held out in the first half, a goal from Gordon Smith and an own goal from Michael McGowan sent the Fife side through.
Shire though thought they had a life-line when Michael Herd converted, but his effort was ruled out for offside.
Falkirk enter the competition at the fourth round stage, with the draw for games on November 30, made tomorrow by Sir Alex Ferguson.
