Largs Thistle boss Stuart Davidson told the 'News' he was delighted to get a home draw in the 3rd round of the Scottish Cup.
Thistle face Shotts Bon Accord at Barrfields on Saturday October 27 in a re-match of the 2012 semi-final. It will be a 2.30pm kick-off.
Davidson said: "Shotts have picked up a bit this season, and they have a very good manager and coach in John McKeown who we are familiar with from his time as manager at Cumnock, and assistant manager at Cambuslang last season.
"So he will know a bit about us.
" I am expecting a really hard game.
"There is a wee bit of recent history between the clubs too, and that always adds some extra spice, and it is one that we are looking forward to."
Indeed, Largs lost out to Shotts after a scoreless draw at Barrfields (1-1 on aggregate) in the 2nd leg of the Scottish Cup semis six years ago, with the visitors winning on penalty kicks, before going on to beat Auchinleck Talbot in the Scottish Cup final of that year.
