Andy Murray has already sampled Davis Cup action for Team GB at Braehead

Great Britain's Davis Cup tie against Slovakia will be played at Braehead Arena in February.

The Renfrewshire venue has proved successful for GB, with recent wins over Luxembourg and Hungary.

GB captain Leon Smith will hope to have Andy Murray available after the world number three played in the Hungary tie at the same venue last month.

"We know from previous experience that Braehead provides a great venue with a really supportive atmosphere," he said.

The winners of the Europe/Africa Zone Group I tie, which will be played on 10-12 February, will then face Belgium in July.

"Next year will be a real step up in terms of the level of competition so it will make the home advantage all the more important," said Smith.

"Slovak Republic will be tough to beat, but if we get a full house behind us again there's no reason why we can't get off to a winning start."
