Deveronvale boss Steve Dolan is optimistic after their 1-1 draw with Spartans in the Scottish Cup first round.
The Lowland League side will make the trip to Princess Royal Park on Saturday for the first round replay after Saturday’s stalemate at Ainslie Park.
Cameron Dawson had Spartans ahead, but Harry Noble’s penalty secured a draw for the Banffers.
Dolan said: “I thought we played really well. I don’t think there was much between the teams.
“If either side had lost it would have been harsh. We can take confidence going into the replay.
“We had been written off before Saturday, but we played well and if we can play to a similar level we’ve got a good chance.”
Elsewhere, Huntly were edged out 1-0 by Linlithgow Rose at Prestonfield. Tommy Coyne’s second half goal won it for the East of Scotland leaders.
Keith lost 3-2 to University of Stirling at Kynoch Park.
Conor Doan had the students ahead, but the Maroons fought back with Craig MacAskill and Cammy Keith on target.
