The Scottish Cup concluded on Monday night as Dundee saw off League One opposition in Peterhead at Balmoor.
The Premiership side ran out 3-0 winners but had difficult moments and the home team were denied a stonewall penalty in the first-half when Dundee led 1-0.
Progression for James McPake’s side means it is an all-Premiership affair in the quarter-final with Celtic and Rangers travelling to face Dundee United and Dundee respectively. Motherwell will host Hibs and Hearts welcome St Mirren to Tynecastle Park. The eight teams know they are just one win away from returning to Hampden Park.
Ties are scheduled to take place on the weekend of March 12 with the likelihood none will be played at 3pm on the Saturday due to TV coverage as Premier Sports and BBC have access to two ties each.
Meanwhile, there is a big game in the Premiership this evening as Aberdeen host St Johnstone. The Dons can jump back into the top six with a win, while the Perth Saints will be looking to get off the bottom of the league.
Barry Robson is in interim charge at Pittodrie, aided by Scott Brown and Neil Simpson, while the hierarchy search for a new manager.
Robson said: “I am employed by Aberdeen and I want them to do well. It is never easy when a manager loses his job. I have experienced it many times as a player and as a coach."
