It's just a bit tedious drawing a team from the same division in any Cup - we're one of 3 ties comprising all-League 1 teams.
Brechin is tough at the best of times but maybe we can make home advantage pay. We've beaten them in Challenge (2006-07)and League Cups (2000-01) but never played them in the Scottish Cup
