Albion Rovers' antiquated Cliftonhill Stadium is as 'old-school' as one could possibly get and has an atmosphere all-too-lacking in the modern game. It's facilities are pretty spartan and may leave a lot to be desired but a visit there is likely to conjure up memories of childhood football where fans swap ends at half-time and most home fans know each other by name. At Cliftonhill, opposing supporters are usually to be found huddled together in the small main stand and we can expect a sizeable crowd to be heading to Coatbridge for tonight's Scottish Cup clash with Premiership side St Johnstone.

The 'Wee Rovers' are hardly flying high in Scotland's third-tier with just four points separating them from the bottom two in the League One table and they head into this tricky midweek cup match on the back of a poor run which has seen them win one, draw four and lose seven of their last twelve league matches. They only just edged past non-league East Kilbride to the tune of 4-3 to set themselves up with this fourth-round clash and while we expect them to give a good account of themselves and give their more illustrious opponents a bit of a scare by adding to the scoreline, there is no evidence to suggest that an upset is on the cards.

St Johnstone are sitting mid-table in the Scottish Premiership and they will certainly welcome what should be a relatively easy outing following some hard-fought encounters of late. The Perthshire side managed an excellent 3-1 win at Ibrox earlier this month but they followed this by taking just two points from their subsequent three league games and a diversion from Premiership action will certainly be welcome, especially so since they should head home with a win in the bag.
