Stranraer have a potential Scottish Cup trip to Tynecastle

Sunday's third round draw paired Stevie Farrell's side with the winners of the second round tie between the Jambos - beaten finalists for the past two seasons - and the still to be played first round match between East of Scotland League Camelon Juniors and Highland League side Brora Rangers.

A match with Hearts would bring together two of the clubs who joined forces - along with Partick Thistle - to oppose their controversially enforced relegation by the SPFL after last season was cut short by Covid-19.

The last meeting between Stranraer and Hearts met was in the third round of the Scottish Cup in 2007, Hearts winning 4-0 at Stair Park thanks to a hat-trick from Andrius Velicka and a goal from Roman Bednar.

The tie is due to be played on the weekend of January 30.
