In an incredible quirk of fate, Carluke Rovers have drawn Irvine opposition for a second time in this season’s Scottish Junior Cup.
Having beaten Irvine Victoria 2-1 away in the third round, Rovers have been drawn to face Irvine Meadow at John Cumming Stadium in round four on Saturday, January 21, kick-off 1.45pm.
Like Victoria, Meadow ply their trade two leagues higher than Central Division 2 Rovers, who will be looking to cause another upset.
“It is a good draw for us,” said Rovers match reporter Craig Martin.
“We should be able to draw a good crowd for that and it keeps our interest in the competition into January.
“We have already shown we can beat a team in Super League Division 1 so it is all positive for us.
“It is all about confidence. When you go on a wee run of winning games, like we are at the moment, it definitely helps.”
Rovers moved sixth in the league table with a 4-1 win at St Anthony’s last Saturday, with Ian Watt scoring a hat-trick.
