Holders given away clash in Scottish Cup fourth-round draw

Holders Hibs will begin their defence of the William Hill Scottish Cup with a fourth round away clash against either Dumbarton or Bonnyrigg Rose.

The draw at Rugby Park last night handed the Junior outfit a massive incentive when they take on the Sons in their replay at the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium next week following Saturday’s 0-0 draw.

Hearts will travel to Championship side Raith Rovers, managed by ex-Jambos boss Gary Locke.
