Sutton United, an English team, away in Dublin, in a Scottish cup competition. Brilliant!

Happy with Montrose at home. One paper a weaker side than Raith, who didn't cause us that much trouble. 

Wonder if Bolo will get a chance to play at Victoria Park?

Will be interesting to see what sort of sides some of those put out.

East Fife is a decent enough draw for us and, being a weekend tie with no midweek games around it, I'd expect us to play a full strength side, but we've lost there before and they just beat Thistle..................

You'd expect Arbroath to have too much for Edinburgh City.

Bohemians v Sutton is an interesting tie. I don't think either side played anything like their full strength side at the weekend in beating Peterhead and Airdrie. Will either do so now? No real idea which will be stronger.

Dunfermline v Alloa is a divisional clash. Pars should be favourites in theory but again it may depend how seriously they take it. They played a reserve side at Inverness in round 1 but played the first team at Boreham Wood. A one off to avoid embarrassment in England or will they stick to that now?

Ross County will be heavy favourites v Montrose whatever side they put out.

You'd think after winning at TNS Queens Park will be favourites v St Mirren Colts. Will the new St Mirren boss use a couple of experienced players and have a go though?

Likewise you'd expect Sligo to beat Motherwell Colts but they weren't exactly all conquering in beating Livingston's Colts in the last round and Motherwell will be better.

Connagh's Quay v Coleraine is another intriguing all foreign affair. Connagh's Quay got a good win at Falkirk but they are a car crash right now. Coleraine needed penalties to beat Formartine but then they beat Crusaders 3-0 the week before and Crusaders looked decent against us. I think I'd make Coleraine favourites but it's a bit of a stab in the dark too.

QP away to St Mirren Under 20's.

Good draw for us.

  1. Better than even chance of progression (don't say Motherwell)
  2. Closer to home gives all our fans a chance to pack the wee shed this time
  3. Far enough away from home for all our fans to make some noise
  4. After Saturday all the lads will want to be involved, good for the league games coming up
  5. I've never been to New Love Street, or whatever it's called this week
  6. Chance to pump out another Colts team

As an Edinburgh city fan I want any of the irish teams, sutton or Connahs Quay away. Would be magic a tiny club like ours getting a road trip away involving plane travel. Thats a fans selfish point of view anyway. The club probably want a home tie to save the coffers a bit.. This competition has grown on me massively. Get the colts teams out of it and bring in more Highland,Lowland and clubs from Ireland, England and Wales 

If your plane is on the road Trackdaybob probably fixed it.

I take it you're not intrigued by Sligo Rovers' visit to Motherwell Under 20's? I'm sure the draw will be the talk of Sligo tonight.

 

ETA - Sorry, that was supposed to be a reply to Raith Raver's comment on the draw but I made an arse of it.

Are Kevin Smith and Pat Slattery still at New Methil?  Any other ex- QoS players on the books? I thought Kevin Smith was an ok player for us,  definitely not a Dobbie (who else is)  but better than the likes of Kean. Slattery was another player I felt back then could still have done a job for us even though an injury set him back a bit. Not a bad draw really IMO,  I prefer to go to Scottish grounds that we don't visit too regularly.

Like most folk on here they aren't keen on the Colt sides being included. It wouldn't be any big talking point if either your colts or Sligo won the match, except in Sligo where there might be some embarrassment if you beat them. I think Motherwell Colts have a decent chance against them, but in honesty I would prefer the first team side to beat a colt side every time.

I was being a wee bit tongue in cheek while pointing out there is one tie between a Scottish team and a foreign club. I doubt the good people of Sligo would be getting excited about a trip to Motherwell never mind the Under 20's.
I don't think the Colt sides add anything to the competition. If anything it's a bit demeaning to ask a club from another country to travel to Scotland to play a club's Colts team.

Sutton United at home, could be a good one

Home draw to an English mob, should get a great crowd up in Dayler.
