Carson, however, insists his side must look past their opponent's league slump. 

Carson said: “This is a big chance for us to do something special, so we need to keep our heads up.

“A win on Saturday would take us into the quarter-finals for the first time in 13 or 14 years, so it’s all to play for.

"Rob Roy are a good young side who will be desperate not to lose to a team a division below them. Their league position and form means nothing on the day.

"We know we'll be underdogs, but we also know that if we play to our ability then we'll have a really good shot."
