The Warriors travel to Coatbridge on Saturday where a win in the William Hill Scottish Cup fifth round has the potential to notch the Ochilview outfit a money spinning quarter-final match.

Midfielder Sean Dickson knows the Cliftonhill match is massive.

“It’s a great opportunity,” he said. “That would be two quarter-finals we’d have reached. Rovers may be in League Two, but we won’t be taking them lightly as we don’t have a great record against them.

“It’s a terrific chance for us to get into the quarter-finals and there will be no need for motivation.

Barring an unlikely last minute appointment, Brown Ferguson and David Rowson are likely to be responsible for team matters. Ferguson said: “The management position is just as it was last week and we continue to focus on the next game.

“We will analyse the Stranraer game and see where we can make improvement as always. We then work on that in preparation for what of course is a big cup game at Coatbridge.

“The prize is massive, but the game is just a game. The staff, players and myself will treat it as such with the view to prepare properly to win the game.”
