IT’S the kind of match which comes along once in a generation. 
So it’s safe to say Neilston Juniors’ Scottish Cup quarter-final against big-spending Pollok has got the village talking. 

Neilston co-manager Chris Cameron says there is a buzz about Brig O’Lea as his side bid to make history. 

The Farmer’s Boys have reached the quarter-finals of the Junior Scottish Cup on four occasions, most recently in 2006/07, but have never made the last four.

Cameron’s men will be looking to break that duck when the Premiership outfit visit East Renfrewshire this Saturday.

The Lok have won the Scottish Junior Cup on three occasions and visit Neilston with a host of former professionals among their ranks, including ex-Queen of the South defender Gerry McLauchlan, one time Rangers youngster Jordan McMillan and Iain Russell, whose career has included spells with Airdrieonians and Motherwell. 

They currently lie in second place in the Premiership but Cameron insists his team won’t be turning up just to sit back and defend. 

He told Barrhead Sport: “You could go and try and sit in and hope Pollok have an off day but the chances are they’d punish us.

“We’ve got to go and be as positive as we possibly can be and try and take the game to them.

“We’ll be looking to make it uncomfortable for them and hopefully our boys show what they’re all about. We’re not looking to go and sit back and soak up pressure.

“For 90 to 95 per cent of the boys, this is the biggest game they’ll have played in and the furthest they’ve been in this competition.

“They’ll be looking to me and Derek [Carson] and a few others that have played in these games before to make sure that the game doesn’t pass them by, because it can happen in these type of occasions.”

He added: “We’ve been trying our best not to speak about the game in the weeks building up but now our full concentration is on Pollok.

“There’s no doubt it’s the game the players and the club have been looking forward to since the draw was made. There’s a buzz about the place.”

Frustratingly, Neilston head into the tie on the back of another postponement after their West of Scotland Cup clash with Kilsyth Rangers fell victim to Storm Dennis. 

The Farmer’s Boys co-manager admits he was left surprised after being originally told the game would go ahead.

He said: “I was a wee bit baffled myself with the fact that they said the game was going to be on in the morning.

“I’ve got a couple of friends who play with Kilsyth and they had said themselves they thoroughly expected the game to be off but their committee was convinced it was going to go ahead.

“I was driving through at the point when I got the call to say the game was going to be off.

“We had to be seen as professional and travel through but I never expected it to be on.” 

Kick-off for the cup tie with Pollok is at 2.15pm.
