Bonnyrigg Rose and Rob Roy clashed in the later stages of last season's Scottish Junior Cup

Among the sides going for glory this season are Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and Stewart Maxwell's side - who thumped Glenrothes in the first round - have another home tie, against Central District side Carluke Rovers.

Bonnyrigg Rose, who beat Rob Roy in the quarter-finals last season before losing to Auchinleck Talbot, are away East Region rivals Fauldhouse United.

Mark Bradley's Linlithgow Rose, also beaten semi-finalists last time out, travel to Ayrshire side Lugar Boswell Thistle while Bo'ness United are also away, at Brechin Vics.

Cumbernauld United, who beat former winners Tayport in the first round, make a quick return to Fife to face Thornton Hibs while their local rivals Kilsyth Rangers host Stoneywood Parkvale.

Surprise East Superleague challengers Dundonald Bluebell will visit Thorniewood United and Camelon are at home to Hall Russell United while Glasgow giants Pollok are away to Royal Albert.

Holders Glenafton are away to Ayrshire rivals Dalry Thistle and beaten finalists Auchinleck have a home tie with Forres Thistle.

However the top tie may well be the clash between West Super League side Kilbirnie Ladeside and East Superleague leaders Penicuik Athletic.
