Hearts opponents given all-clear to restart training ahead of Scottish Cup clash
Brora Rangers will restart training this week as the Highland League club prepare for their Scottish Cup second round encounter with Hearts.
Steven Mackay’s side will host the runaway champions leaders after every member of the squad returned a negative Covid-19 test. They haven’t been allowed to train together since the start of Scotland’s second lockdown.
Brora will host Robbie Neilson’s men at Dudgeon Park next Tuesday evening. The winner will receive a home tie against League Two Stranraer in the next round.
Though fans are still unable to attend the match, chairman William Powrie has confirmed Brora will have a pay-per-view service in place so supporters don’t have to miss out.
He told the Northern Times: “We have in place an upgraded pay-per-view offering which is fantastic news.
“But we also have to do the prep work of the PCR testing of the players, twice before the match. That still has challenges before everything falls into place.”
