Excitement is mounting among the Linlithgow Rose faithful after their favourites drew Raith Rovers in Round Three of the Scottish Cup when the draw was made on Monday.

But coach Danny Smith warned: ‘‘There’s games to be won before we lined up against Raith Rovers!’’

And the Prestonfield boss wants his squad to keep their eye on the ball beginning tomorrow (Saturday) when they face Ballingry in a ‘‘meat and potatoes’’ Super League fixture in Fife.

He said: ‘‘Cup ties are all very well but we are a wee bit out of touch in the league and we must get three points at Ballingry but we will have to be creative.’’

Meanwhile Bo’ness United boss Allan McGonigal was delighted by his team’s 7-1 thrashing of Culter in the same tournament as the Rose.

The BUs face Hill of Beath Hawthorn tomorrow (Saturday) and McGonigal said: ‘‘I will switch things around to ensure everyone is match fit for the coming games and that will give everyone a chance to show me what they can do. We have home advantage on Saturday and we must make that work for us.’’
