The Warriors progressed in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup

The home side progressed to tomorrow's fourth round draw after a penalty shoot-out.

Keeper was his side's hero on the day, producing a number of fine stops, including three in the all-important shootout.
Difficult challenge against the movement of the lively TNS wingers, but competed well. Was kept in check going forward.
No major issues from the big centre-back, although TNS did find their way through on a few occasions, especially in the first half
Enjoyed the battle with big striker Draper and grew into eventually winning that contest. Scored a decisive first spot-kick in the shootout.
Offered good protection for McLaughlin in the wide areas and sprung forward on a few decent runs.
Tough assignment with dangerman Brobbel and caught out with a diagonal in the first half which led to a chance for the visitors.
Had the quietest day of the three in the Stenny engine room, but still made a few critical interceptions, especially in the second half.
Some skilful touches from the winger and dug out a good cross for the Stenny goal.
Really grew into the game in the second half supporting Anderson and was picked out by gaffer McMenamin for his display.
An excellent display from the forward, who occupied two defenders and posed a constant threat. Took his goal well, but tired.
Experienced midfielder was a calming presence anchoring the midfield, as well as delivering tempting set pieces all afternoon.
Boss masterminded more cup heroics for his side over a decent TNS side.
On to keep things tight at the end.
Enjoyed a strong 20 minute cameo, with a few good runs to commit defenders and kept his cool for the winning penalty.
Didn't make much impact, but notched in the shootout.
