St Mirren beat TNS to reach Scottish Challenge Cup final

Stephen McGinn's equaliser turned the tide in St Mirren's favour

St Mirren came from behind to beat Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints and book a Scottish Challenge Cup final date with Dundee United.

Ryan Brobbel swept a dipping shot over St Mirren keeper Paul Harrison to give the visitors the lead before half-time.

But in a dramatic four-minute spell, Stephen McGinn rifled in a 25-yarder before TNS' Steven Saunders saw red and Stevie Mallan curled in the free-kick.

John Sutton added a third before Rory Loy grabbed the fourth in injury time.

Two minutes earlier before his goal, Sutton had a penalty saved by Harrison, but the veteran striker made no mistake as he tucked home a Kyle Magennis cut-back from the right flank.

The final, at a venue yet to be confirmed, will take place on the weekend of 25/26 March. United won 3-2 at Queen of the South in Saturday's first semi-final.
