William Hill Scottish Cup Fourth Round Replay: Global Energy Stadium, Dingwall, Tuesday 12th January 2016, kick off 7.45pm
After the exciting Fourth Round Scottish Cup tie at East End Park on Saturday the teams will be asked to do it all again on Tuesday in the replay. Ross County manager Jim McIntyre claimed that his team 'dodged the bullets' on Saturday but the Pars will need to beware that County might be firing them when they get to Dingwall.
All Competitive Matches v Ross County
W D L
On Saturday Ross County's Dutch striker, Alex Schalk opened the scoring in the third minute. Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored a cracking goal to equalise just 12 minutes later.
The visitors restored their lead from a 27th minute penalty, Brian Graham netting to make it 2-1 before new signing Brad McKay pulled it back to 2-2 only 11 minutes into the second half.
The Pars had the better opportunities after that, El Bakhtaoui had a great effort turned on to the bar and Joe Cardle tried hard to score but it just didn't happen for him.
