Largs fought out a goalless stalemate against last season's champions Beith on Saturday at Barrfields, with the woodwork coming to Beith's rescue after Largs struck the bar three times.
Reflecting on Saturday's home draw with Beith, manager Stuart Davidson said: "In the end up I thought we finished the game well, I don't think we started the game too well.
"The first half seemed a bit low key - it was a bit tame at that point and the wind spoilt it a bit.
"The boys picked up and in the end up after rattling the bar three times the boys were a bit unlucky not to get the goal.
"I think over the game you could see it was maybe going to be a draw but I thought we maybe could have got a goal near the end.
"Beith are a quality side and they have been for a few years. I thought we defended really well, and I don't think Jamie McGowan had a lot to do in goal, and first and foremost you want to keep a clean sheet at home.
"We didn't create a lot in the first half but we did hit the bar, and we had chances which was encouraging and the second half was much more like us.
"The players are all fighting for their places in the cup final team. The guys who started have got the jersey and there were some players who didn't even make the squad."
