Dundee United sailed into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup with a 4-0 win over Division Three outfit East Stirlingshire.
The SPL side took control of the game after just 15 minutes with Prince Buaben finding the net with a shot from 20 yards out.
United doubled their lead five minutes before the break when Darren Dods headed home from close-range after Paul Dixon had curled a corner into the six-yard box.
Craig Levein's side made the game safe three minutes later when Jon Daly headed home Sean Dillon's cross.
Teenager Johnny Russell made it 4-0 ten minutes after the break when he scored from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Craig Tully.
United will face fellow SPL side Hamilton in the next round.
