The Scottish Cup fifth round draw was made on Monday, which following this draw Hearts now know Edinburgh rivals Hibernian will be the visitors with this the reward for beating Aberdeen at Tynecastle on Saturday.

Dreams of Cup glory continue for many still involved, including ourselves, but for a number ‘the dream’ of winning this competition is all it’ll be but if our own quest to continue beyond this tie Hibs have to be overcome, which (obviously) we’ll hope they will!

Following the draw it is now known all that stands between us and a place in the sixth round, and a step closer to winning the cup again, is a win in this fifth round tie, not that it’ll be as straightforward as that of course as this is the Scottish Cup we’re talking about isn’t it….

The full fifth round fixtures are.

Motherwell v Stirling Albion or Inverness Caledonian Thistle
East Kilbride or Lothian Thistle Hutchison Value v Celtic
Dundee Utd v Partick Thistle
Dunfermline Athletic or Ross County v Linlithgow Rose or Forfar Athletic
Rangers v Kilmarnock
Annan Athletic v Greenock Morton
Dumbarton v Dundee or Falkirk
Heart of Midlothian v Hibernian

This game will be played on the weekend of 6th February, now the questions being asked are, are you happy with the tie and are you confident of the chances of making it into the next round?
