The Scottish Cup Third Round draw has taken place tonight following yesterday’s Second Round ties – and there are some really interesting ties, including an all-Championship clash between Partick Thistle and Dunfermline.
With 19 ties played and 57 goals scored across yesterday’s games, Banks O’Dee put five past Nairn County to end as the top scorers in the previous round with a clash against East Fife their reward in the Third Round.
Teams from the Championship and League One enter the competition at this stage, setting up some mouth-watering – with several former winners of the Scottish cup entering.
West of Scotland League side Darvel were the source of the biggest shock of the last round, beating League Two Stranraer 1-0 while Lowland League Civil Service Strollers beat Cowdenbeath 4-2 to book their place in this afternoon’s draw.
There are three Second Round ties that need to go to a replay after playing out a draw yesterday (Albion Rovers v Brora, Rothes v Dalbeattie Star and Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale v Dunbar United) while Clydebank face Elgin City tomorrow night live on TV.
Ties are due to take place on the weekend of November 27 – with one game to be broadcast live on BBC Scotland.
