Gray worry for Bonnyrigg
Chris Gray is a doubt for Junior side Bonnyrigg Rose as they take on Second Division Brechin at New Dundas Park, with a home game against St Mirren on offer to the winners.
New signing Mickey Gemmell is not eligible to play against the Glebe Park men as manager Max Christie looks for his side to build on a strong record at home.
Christie said: "At Junior level we have done well on our own patch for a while now, however we will not be kidding ourselves on as Brechin are still very strong favourites to win.
"We would probably have taken a replay before the first game, however after being two goals up we were disappointed by that result, but we have another chance.''
Brechin welcome Gerry McLauchlan back into the squad after the defender missed last weekend's 2-2 draw through suspension.
Glebe Park manager Ray McKinnon knows his opponents well, saying: "I visited Bonnyrigg a good few times when I was a manager with Lochee Juniors so I am not going in blind.
"People have been telling me that we are favourites to get through, but favourites do not always win.
"Barcelona were meant to beat Celtic, however that never happened, so we have to go and put the work in to win our place in what would be an exciting tie away to St Mirren.
"If the players keep doing what we have asked them to do I'm sure we will do okay.''
