Uni draw Albion Rovers in Scottish Cup

1 min read

The University of Stirling will play Albion Rovers in the third round of the Scottish Cup.

A 3-1 away win over Dunbar United on Saturday put the students in the hat for the draw.

It will be the second time Chris Geddes has led his side into this stage of the competition since taking over.

He said: “Whoever we drew at this stage was going to be a tough game, and Albion Rovers away is tough.

“We are underdogs, so we will go and give it our best shot.

“The boys have done great to get to the third round, and we will look forward to it.”

Albion Rovers will face a second University team this season, having knocked Glasgow University out in the previous round.

Mark Adams, who assisted Geddes at Stirling for the last five years, took Albion Rovers to extra time from the Glasgow dugout in his first season with the club.

However, Rovers scored three in extra time to seal a 4-1 win and book a place in the third round.

Stirling will travel to Coatbridge on the weekend of Saturday, 26 November, to face the League Two side.

Elsewhere, both Stirling Albion and Alloa Athletic received away ties.

Albion will travel to Championship leaders Inverness Caledonian Thistle, while Alloa will face Lowland League side Open Goal Broomhill at Broadwood.
