West top-flight leaders Kirkintilloch Rob Roy lie between East Super League champions Bonnyrigg Rose and a place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Junior Cup.

Rob Roy have already knocked out two of Rose’s local rivals on their path to the quarter-finals, edging past Penicuik Athletic 4-3 in the last round after a fourth-round victory over Musselburgh Athletic. Robbie Horn’s men will represent the Dumbartonshire-based club’s sternest test yet, however, when they go head-to-head on Saturday, March 18 at Rose’s New Dundas Park.

Linlithgow Rose, whose fifth-round tie with Maryhill is scheduled to be played this weekend after two postponements, will host lowest-ranked Gartcairn Juniors at Prestonfield should they get past the west second-tier club.

Favourites Auchinleck Talbot – 11-times winners of the competition – host Kilwinning Rangers, while Glenafton, who defeated Dunbar United in the last round, entertain Sauchie Juniors.
