    Scottish Cup draw 

    Wednesday, October 26, 2016 4:30:14 PM

    Alloa Athletic have been drawn to play Peterhead, away from home, in this season's William Hill Scottish Cup 3rd Round, after the draw took place at Cappielow Stadium in Greenock. Player/Manager Jim Goodwin said "Any away game is going to be more difficult, we would fancy or chances against anyone at home. Peterhead are a good side, they are well organised, however we had a decent result against them in our opening league fixture this season, winning 4-0 at the Indodrill Stadium and we will look to emulate another victory when we travel north to Balmoor Stadium at the end of November. We know about their dangers, especially Rory McAllister who always carries a goal threat and doea a great job for them. The venue can be difficult, especially when you are playing into the wind, so we will have to be at our best".
