Match preview

Having caused the biggest upset in Scottish Cup history last month, what will Darvel produce this time?

The Vale are from the West of Scotland League Premier Division, which forms part of the sixth-tier.

Thus, Mick Kennedy’s team began their Scottish Cup campaign in the preliminary round, ousting Haddington Athletic way back in August.

Darvel then overcame Tynecastle, Dalbeattie Star and Montrose to set up a glamour fourth round clash against Aberdeen.

Against all odds Jordan Kirkpatrick, a plumber by day, scored the night’s only goal, doing so on the turn, as Darvel knocked out the seven-times winners.

This is, without doubt, the biggest shock in the 150-year history of the Scottish Cup, so can Darvel do it again?

The Bairns are though dreaming of promotion to the Championship, currently second in the table, albeit four points below Dunfermline.

In this tournament, John McGlynn’s team have so far ousted Wick Academy and Alloa, but certainly will not be taking this tie lightly.

Will Falkirk reach the quarter-finals for the first time in five seasons, or can Darvel pull off another monumental Monday night surprise at Recreation Park?
