GEOFF Jones insists his Dunbar United side will travel to junior football giants Irvine Meadow with "no fear".

The Seasiders were drawn against the Ayrshire giants in the fourth round of this year's Scottish Junior Cup – a competition Irvine Meadow have won on three occasions.

Their last triumph was in the early 1970s, but they remain a force to be reckoned with.

And Jones, whose side booked their place in the fourth round with a 4-0 replay success over Aberdeenshire outfit Hermes, admitted it is a "tough" draw.

The Dunbar boss told Courier Sport: "You've got to accept that in the last 32 of our premier competition.

"On our day we have a chance against most teams so we won't go into the game with any fear.

"However I won't deny I'd have liked a home draw and if I'm honest after trips to Denny, Ardrossan and Hermes so far, I think we maybe deserved a wee bit of luck in terms of coming out the hat first."

The former striker, who has been in charge at New Countess Park since 2014, admitted paying for transport to those away ties has impacted the club financially, but he refused to be disheartened as they were handed another tough assignment away from home.

Jones added: "The committee were desperate to get a home tie as the away ties have hit club funds, and we always get a big crowd at home on Junior Cup days.

"It is what it is and we need to get on with it."

And looking ahead to the match, Jones added: "Our away form this year has actually been better than our home form, so we will have no fear."
