Turriff United manager Ross Jack has called on his players to make their mark against Bonnyrigg Rose.
Turra travel to Midlothian tomorrow to face the Rose in their Scottish Cup first round replay.
The pair drew 1-1 at the Haughs last weekend.
Chris Herd had opened the scoring for United before Adam Nelson levelled for the East Superleague champions.
Ahead of the clash at New Dundas Park, boss Jack knows his charges will find it difficult. But he is confident they can do enough to get through to the second round.
Jack said: “We know how formidable they are on their own patch.
“We’re familiar with their style of play but we need to impose our style of play and our formation and try to take the game to them.
“It’s a challenge the boys are relishing but we know how tough it is.
“I’ve said before that we’ll give them every respect but we certainly don’t fear them. We’ve done our homework so we just need to make sure that on the day we get things right.”
Jack also wants his players to be spurred on by the prospect of a mouthwatering tussle with fellow Highland League club Cove Rangers in round two.
“Cove are waiting in the next round and that’s the incentive for us,” he said.
If Turriff are to get through they will need to be resolute in defence and Jack insisted they could take confidence from a solid defensive display last Saturday when they largely contained a free-scoring Bonnyrigg.
He said: “They’d scored barrel-loads of goals in their last few league games. But we defended extremely well.
“There was a lot of play in the middle of the park from both teams and not a lot of chances created by either side.”
Turriff’s Allen McKenzie, Nick Gray and James Chalmers are all major doubts for the game.
