ROSS Jack believes Turriff’s “historic” game against Montrose will be even tougher than facing St Johnstone Colts.
His Highland League side face the Angus club at The Haughs in the Irn-Bru Cup second round.
Turriff beat St Johnstone Under-20s 2-1 to reach this point thanks to a late David Booth winner.
They have also won their last two games, beating Huntly in both the league and Aberdeenshire Cup.
But Jack expects to this be the toughest test of his side this season so far.
He said: “Facing Montrose will be a far harder game than the one with St Johnstone.
“They have a lot of experience, will be more physical so we know we are in for a real tough encounter.
“It’s huge for us so we need to make sure match them in all departments and try and control the game if we can.”
Turriff will have skipper Cammy Bowden back for the game.
This is the first time they have been in the Irn-Bru Cup.
And Jack is keen for his players to seize their opportunity.
He said: “It’s a historic game for the club, playing a Football League club, on our patch at the stage of the competition.
“Turriff’s never had that before so it gives everyone a great opportunity to test themselves.”
