Berwick Rangers will face Lowland League champions Spartans in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup - if they can overcome Albion Rovers in their replay at Cliftonhill next week.

The draw gives all three clubs a good chance to reach the quarter-finals.

Berwick and Albion drew 1-1 at Shielfield on Saturday, while Spartans produced the shock of the round by coming from behind to knock out League 1 leaders Morton out at Ainslie Park.

In their only previous Scottish Cup meeting, Spartans knocked Berwick out in the first round with a 1-0 win at City Park in November 2005.
