Scottish teams kept apart in Challenge Cup semi-finals
The draw raises the prospect of a domestic cup final featuring no SPFL teams.
The semi-final draw for the Challenge Cup has kept alive the possibility of a domestic cup final featuring no SPFL teams for the first time.
The last-four ties in the competition were drawn on Tuesday afternoon when Welsh side The New Saints were given a home draw against Dumbarton.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle will host Northern Irish side Crusaders in the other tie.
Two sides from Northern Ireland and from Wales were invited to compete in the competition for the second year running.
They compete alongside teams from the Scottish Championship, League 1 and League 2, under-20 "Colt" teams representing each Premiership side and four representatives from the Highland and Lowland Leagues.
Welsh side TNS reached the semi-finals last season, losing 4-1 to St Mirren but the Northern Irish sides were eliminated in the fourth round.
The semi-finals are scheduled to be played on February 17 and 18 next year.
