Maybe a good omen we beat  Morton twice in a row.   Feeling good about this tournament we must have a chance to get to a final again Always enjoy a day out with a few beers good craic. It may not be The Scottish cup but someone has to win it why not us.

No fun for the away support but I'm sure Robbo will be delighted to have another chance to put out a second string side in a competitive game on our own pitch.

I can understand there are reasons why the club may not be too interested in staying in this competition, I mean, how much money would we lose if we had an away tie at Waterford?  But there would be money to be made from a final, and with so many of the more fancied Scottish teams having bitten the dust already, we might well be favourites for this now.  It is maybe not the greatest of competitions but it would be rather good to win a trophy in our anniversary year.  Saturday demonstrated we have good depth in the squad so there is no reason we can't go all the way in this competition whilst also giving some valuable game time to some of the squad.

I am sure I read somewhere that even if we got to the final the club will not make much money after the SPFL deduct all the expenses of running the final but I would love to get to any cup final so bring it on.

And it's valuable  experience for the younger and/or newbies on our teams.

Deffo not to be sneezed at....especially if we can win aplenty!!

Just remembered that they came through a fairly decent Pars side, where as we came through a Morton side that we wiped the floor with the previous week. I revoke my prior statement of it being an easy draw, and bump it up to a "not too easy, not too hard" draw. Really depends on the outcome of the week before and not letting the players get ahead of themselves.

We shouldn't be taking them lightly...as we all know, shocks happen *cough* Elgin *cough cough* Arbroath...

Wafer thin margins, sorry.
