Lowland League outfit Spartans needed extra time to advance in the South Challenge Cup, coming from behind to finally overcome an in-form Peebles at Ainslie Park.

Substitutes Jack Beacher and Errol Douglas brought the hosts back from the brink of a shock exit against the East of Scotland side, who had led 0-2 after the opening 45 minutes. James Young scored from the spot in the 11th minute, with Peebles captain Dale Richardson heading in another before the break.
