Celtic make the journey down the A1 to face the only English side in the Scottish Cup on Sunday looking for a comfortable victory against the Third Division minnows.

The match is certain to prevail after the town missed the majority of the bad weather which engulfed most of the country over the past few days.

Travelling Celts will be hoping to catch new signing Freddie Ljungberg in action after the Swede was ruled out of making his debut in last weeks Old Firm demolition of Rangers.

Boss Neil Lennon is certain to make changes from the team who won so spectacularly at Ibrox last weekend although is still likely to field a strong side given his side's capitulation in last season's semi final to First Division Ross County.

Lenny admitted "Upsets can happen on any given day and I've been involved in one or two myself.

"But I don't think the players need me to tell them how important the game is or the consequences if they don't perform to their capabilities.

"Some of the players played against Ross County and I made my feelings clear afterwards because it wasn't the first time they had performed as poorly as that throughout the season.

"If it had been a one-off we could have accepted it but that wasn't the case and we don't want to repeat it.

"It would be a huge upset, no doubt about it, but it can happen."

The Wee Rangers face a massive challenge and haven't played only 1 competitive match since the middle of November although they did manage a closed doors outing against Tranent Juniors midweek.

Sky Sports will show live coverage of the game with the kick off being at the slightly unusual time of 3:30pm.
