The Angus clubs were all handed away ties in the Scottish Cup Third Round this morning.
While Arbroath, Brechin City, Forfar Athletic and Montrose would have perhaps preferred home draws, these games are certainly all winnable for the quartet, with a shot at drawing the big boys in the next round on the table.
Arbroath head to Fife to face League One outfit Cowdenbeath, Brechin City visit league rivals Airdrieonians, Forfar Athletic meet Queen’s Park in a repeat of a League Cup game in August while Montrose will play Highland League side Huntly if they can safely negotiate their replay with Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale.
The full draw is as follows:-
Cowdenbeath v Arbroath
Airdrieonians v Brechin City
Queen’s Park v Forfar Athletic
Huntly v Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale or Montrose
Stranraer v Buckie Thistle
Formartine United v Fort William or Cove Rangers
Dumbarton v Alloa Athletic
East Fife or Stirling Albion v Cumbernauld Colts
Albion Rovers v Greenock Morton
Falkirk v Turriff United or Fraserburgh
Wick Academy or Nairn County v Linlithgow Rose
