Spi­ders could face Rose or Wick in Cup

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Queen’s Park will face ei­ther Wick Acad­emy or Lin­lith­gow Rose away from home in the fourth round of the Wil­liam Hill Scot­tish Cup if they over­come For­far Ath­letic on Satur­day in a re­play.

The Spi­ders, who last won the com­pe­ti­tion in 1893, could face the pos­si­bil­ity of a 545-mile re­turn trip to face Wick who sit sixth in the High­land Foot­ball League.

How­ever if Ju­nior East Su­per League side, Lin­lith­gow Rose per­form a cup up­set, Queen’s could en­dure a tricky tie away at Pre­ston­field Park.

Rose also sit sixth in their re­spec­tive league ta­ble, four points off lead­ers Bon­nyrigg Rose.

Queen’s boss Gus MacPher­son said: “Away from home it’s a bit like go­ing into the un­known for ei­ther Queen’s Park or For­far.

“Cer­tainly for the cur­rent squad of play­ers, it will be a new ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We’ve got a tough enough task with For­far to play away from home first.

“I don’t think any­one can get dis­tracted, our tough­est game just now is For­far.”

The draw, which was made on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 1, saw the hold­ers, In­ver­ness Cale­do­nian This­tle, be given an away tie with the win­ners of Cum­ber­nauld Colts or Stir­ling Al­bion.
