Dale Gillespie feels Brora Rangers have every chance of causing another Scottish Cup upset in their replay against Morton.
The Highland League leaders held the Championship side to a 1-1 draw in the third round on Saturday, with Gillespie giving the visitors the lead in the first half.
League sides East Fife and Stranraer have been vanquished in recent years but this was the first time the Cattachs had picked up a positive result against full-time opposition in the Scottish Cup. They will now replay at Dudgeon Park a week tomorrow.
Gillespie said: “When we play big teams we raise our game. We’re a good team anyway, so we’re confident and we’ve got nothing to lose when we play a bigger team.
“That gives us every confidence going into next week. It’ll be tough obviously but we’ll give it our best. Hopefully there will be a big crowd and a few outwith Brora will travel up for it.
“This is a huge result, absolutely. It’ll be up there with the best ever. I’m not sure about from years ago but for this squad certainly the best. A full-time Championship team away from home, we couldn’t have asked for much more to be honest.”
The prize for Steven Mackay’s side, should they see off Morton in the replay, will be a trip to McDiarmid Park to face St Johnstone.
There were few nerves from the Brora midfielder when he stepped up to take the spot-kick, after Martin Maclean had been bundled to the turf by Peter Grant.
He added: “I had two penalties last week and scored them both, so I got a bit of practice in for this one. I decided early what way I was going to go and then hit it as hard as I could. I was delighted it went in.”
