UNDERDOGS Craigmark Burntonians will go all out to spring an upset when they face a David v Goliath showdown in the Ardagh Group West of Scotland Cup.

But assistant boss Jason Stewart concedes they face a massive task as they host Scottish Junior Cup holders Auchinleck Talbot in a rescheduled West last 16 tie at Beechwood Park on Saturday.

With Beechwood Park unplayable, the tie was switched to Station Park but Saturday morning snow resulted in a call-off.

Stewart is relishing the tie and said: “Talbot are obviously a huge club and beat Ayr in the senior Scottish Cup and we are massive underdogs. I want the players to enjoy the game. It’s 11 against 11 and you never know what can happen,”

Talbot manager Tommy Sloan said: “It’s not ideal that the game was off, especially as I was hoping we would have had a league game this week so I could play the kind of side I might play in the Scottish Junior Cup tie against Lochee the following weekend.”

However as ever he will be meticulous in his preparation and said: “Craigmark had a very good run in the Scottish Junior and although they lost to Lochee, the goals were late.

“There is now way we will be underestimating them as they are in improved team in recent seasons. But the West of Scotland Cup is an important competition for us, we want to win every trophy we compete for.”

Meanwhile Glenafton Athletic manager Craig McEwan is set for a testing return to Dunterelie Park to face Arthurlie in another tie.

And he expects a tough test.

He said: “Arthurlie are doing really well and I fully expect them to be promoted at the end of the season. So we know it’s going to be a tough game. I was manager there for 15 weeks and I expect I will get some stick. But the weather is to be a bit better this week and hopefully we will get through.”
