Rovers' reward for a 2-1 win over Stoneyburn on Saturday is another home tie against Blantyre Victoria on October 26.

South Lanarkshire side Vics have won the Scottish Junior Cup on three previous occasions, the last being in 1982.

Burghead won a thrilling replay 4-3 at Lochgelly Albert last weekend, and their next opponents are three-time cup winners Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.

Currently bottom of the West Region Premiership, Rob Roy won 11-1 at Burghead in their last visit in the cup seven years ago.

Islavale, who beat Arbroath Vics in round two, have also landed a home tie against West Premiership side Rutherglen Glencairn.

Dufftown were 2-1 winners over East Kilbride Thistle on Saturday and face another home game against West Division 2 outfit Johnstone Burgh.

Deveronside drew 0-0 with another previous cup winner in Benburb on Saturday, and will replay in Glasgow this weekend.
