Saturday 22nd October, William Hill Scottish Cup Second Round, Att 286.
A goal after just five minutes from Joao Victoria saw Kilby become the first non league side to win a Scottish Cup tie at Central Park since Inverness Caledonian back on 29th October 1956.
Capuano sent over a cross and VICTORIA headed home his 14th goal of the season in 14 games for the Lowland League leaders.
Four minutes later McGurn blocked a Winter effort while at the other end Renton burst through on goal but was adjudged to have fouled both Capuano and keeper Kean.
Todorov then tried his luck from distance with his 25 yard going wide while McGurn smothered a Victoria shot.
Renton then sent latched onto a Rutherford ball but sent his shot from the edge of the box over the bar while nine minutes from the break Kean fumbled a Mullen cross but Renton sent his shot wide.
The second half opened with Strachan almost doubling the visitors advantage with a long range drive which just went wide.
Renton then flicked the ball into the path of Todorov but his shot was gathered by Kean who was to soon after deny Miller.
On the hour former Cowden man Gibbons was sent off for a second booking for a high tackle on Rutherford.
With 71 minutes gone Miller sent over a cross but Renton’s glancing header at the back post went wide.
Kean then dealt with a Mullen free kick while in the closing minutes a looping header by Miller flashed past the visitors’ goal.
