JUBILANT match winner Dwayne Hyslop admitted he made sure team-mate Graham Wilson was not in his way as he bagged the last ditch goal which sent Auchinleck Talbot soaring into the third round of the William Hill Scottish Cup for the second straight year.

Now boss Tommy Sloan and his team are relishing the prospect of locking horns with wily old campaigner Dick Campbell, whose Arbroath side have been drawn to play at Beechwood Park on Saturday, November 23.

Hyslop, in his eighth season at Beechwood Park, said: “I heard Graham Wilson shouting behind me for the ball, but I said it would go bang on to my head so I just seemed to connect with it and it went into the back of the net. It was a great cross from Bryan Boylan. They made us work and there was lot of running. It was well deserved and we love a run in this cup.”

Sloan was impressed with the win and said: “They are a good side with new players from when we played them last season. It was dour at times but the second half brightened up and we tried to win it.

“The boys worked hard all day and got their reward. There was money on us and I was quite surprised at the odds. Our goalie Andy Leishman is part of a good group here and his late save was as good as a goal for us. It’s great to be in the hat.”

Meanwhile Sloan is relishing the tie against Arbroath, who lost to Irvine Meadow 10 years ago, becoming the first Junior side to beat a Scottish League One in the senior cup. But as ever he has other priorities as Forfar West End visit for a Macron Scottish Junior Cup tie.

He said: “There’s a lot of vital games coming up in the next few weeks and must focus on them. We must be on our guard as they scored two goals here last season, we don’t want that happening again and must make sure we get through.”

Of the Arbroath tie he added: “It will be difficult as they are becoming an established Championship club. I know Dick Campbell well through football and he’s been around a long time, he was in management when I was still playing.

This will be a big test for us but a game we can look forward to.”
