BUCKIE Thistle boss Graeme Stewart is relishing a double header against Dundee and Dundee Utd in the Betfred Cup.

The draw has put the Highland League champions in the same group as Premiership Dundee and their Championship rivals Dundee Utd, who missed out on promotion back to the top flight in the play-off final against Hamilton Accies.

The Jags will also face League One Raith Rovers and League Two Cowdenbeath.

The games will be played on July 15, 18-19, July 22, July 25-26 and July 29.

Buckie will play two games at home and two away. The fixture list has yet to be revealed following the draw on Friday, June 2.

Stewart said: "Dundee and Dundee Utd were the two main clubs I wanted to get and Raith Rovers and Cowdenbeath are my father-in-law Jimmy Nicholl's former clubs."
