Following Saturday’s dramatic finale at Glebe Park, Forfar Athletic and Brechin City will cross swords for a fourth time this season on Tuesday.

The fourth round replay takes place at Station Park on Tuesday, December 10, with a 7.45 p.m. kick off.

Admission charges will be as for a normal league game: stand – adults £13, concessions £7; ground £12/£6.

The club is reminding fans that Forfar Athletic season tickets are not valid for Scottish Cup ties.

The two teams will each be minus a player through suspension for the tie.

The red cards issued to Mark Baxter and Euan Moyes incur a one match Scottish Cup ban.

However, Stuart Malcolm will be available. His red card for what referee John McKendrick deemed serious foul play incurs an automatic two game ban which will be served in this week’s away league jousts at Ibrox and East End Park.

And the winners of the replay will have a home tie against St. Johnstone to look forward to. The draw was held on Monday, December 2.

The fifth round tie will be played on February 8.
