Scottish Cup Third Round
Brora Rangers v Stranraer
Brora take on League Two Stranraer at Dudgeon Park, as they aim to emulate their heroics against Hearts in the last round. Manager Steven Mackay has a fully fit squad to choose from, minus the cup-tied Ali Sutherland, who joined the club on a three-year deal from Rothes this week.
Stranraer sit in 5th place in League Two, level on points with Elgin City who occupy the final play-off spot. They will be aiming to avoid a repeat of their Third Round loss to the Cattachs in November 2017.
Formartine Utd v Motherwell
Formartine knocked out Annan on penalties in the last round to earn a plum tie against Motherwell at North Lodge Park. United boss Paul Lawson will relish the opportunity to come up against one of his former clubs.
The Fir Park men are in ninth place in the Premiership, seven points clear of Kilmarnock in the relegation play-off spot. They could include current Scotland right back Stephen O'Donnell in their line-up for this one.
Fraserburgh v Montrose
Broch boss Mark Cowie also has a full squad to choose from for the visit of League One side Montrose to Bellslea. The home side were boosted this week with the news that club captain Ryan Christie, goalkeeper Eddie Flinn and promising youngster Logan Watt have all signed contract extensions.
Visitors Montrose climbed to third place in League One with an excellent win over East Fife in midweek. They now sit just six points behind league leaders Falkirk.
