While its disappointing enough to see B sides in this competition, its more so seeing any of them drawn at home. These sides should always be on the road in this tournament, giving gate funds to the real clubs.

Rangers have been in the market hoovering up youth from Premiership teams, presumably for Lowland League duty, but they'll still play in this competition.

It seems unfair that cross-border sides get a free bye to enter in Round 4 - after all Scottish sides.
