Preston Athletic assistant manager Stevie Adamson says his side are going into the unknown when they take on Fort William tomorrow in the William Hill Scottish Cup preliminary round.
Adamson and manager David Bingham took over at the East of Scotland Premier Division club at the end of last season and been able to watch their cup opponents tomorrow.
However, Adamson says his team will treat Fort William with a lot of respect when they go toe-to-toe tomorrow with a home match against Nairn County on offer for the winner.
He said: "We haven't had the chance to watch Fort William so we'll be looking at last season's results.
"They didn't have the best of seasons but have already played a competitive match which they lost 4-1 so we are going into the unknown in a sense but will certainly be giving them the utmost respect.
"We've had a decent enough pre-season and we're really looking forward to the match."
Manager Bingham has experienced the Scottish Cup before as a player, listing Dunfermline Athletic, St Johnstone and Livingston as just some of his former clubs but it will be new experience for his assistant Adamson.
Adamson added: "We have just taken over the club but will be hoping we can go as far as we can in this competition. There is a home tie against Nairn County in the first round up for grabs should we get through tomorrow and we'll be taking a bus load of people through to support us.
"This is the first time I've been involved in a Scottish Cup match but the manager has played in a lot of matches as a player. Unfortunately, he won't be there tomorrow because of a pre-arranged commitment but we believe we can win the match and who knows how far we can go.”
