Stenhousemuir could set up a local derby - if they defeat Berwick Rangers next week.

The Warriors, or Berwick, were drawn away at near neighbours Falkirk in the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round when the draw was made today.

The last time the sides met was also in Cup competition - and the Bairns ran out 3-1 winners in the Communities League Cup last term, thanks to a Craig Sibbald double at The Falkirk Stadium.

It would be a homecoming - of sorts - for Stenhosuemuir boss Martyn Corrigan who started his career out as a Bairn.

There are other derbies in prospect as Inverness Caledonian Thistle face Ross County, and in a repeat of last year’s final Hibs host Hearts.

Games are scheduled to be played on the weekend of December 1/2.

Stenhousemuir play Berwick at Shielfield Park on Tuesday, November 13, 2012.
