We’ve already had two fixtures take place with Hibs edging past Cove Rangers thanks to Kevin Nisbet’s extra-time strike at Easter Road on Thursday night. It was a nervy night for Shaun Maloney’s men but they did the job in the end and are in the hat for the fifth round draw.

They are alongside Rangers who made light work of Stirling Albion on Friday night. They ran out 4-0 winners at Ibrox with two goals in either half. James Tavernier scored from the spot, while Cedric Itten got on the scoresheet having returned from his loan in Germany. Fashion Sakala added a late fourth but it was the opening goal which was most memorable with teenager Alex Lowry finding the back of the net with a lovely finish on his debut.

Attention switches to the 3pm kick-offs after Hearts waltzed past Auchinleck Talbot in the early encounter, winning 5-0.

The final fixture comes from Alloa as the Wasps host Celtic at 5.30pm.

So, when is the draw for the fifth round?

It will be held today [Saturday]. There is no specific time for the draw but it will take place after the Alloa v Celtic game. It should be noted there are no replays so if the game goes to extra-time fans will face a wait to find out who their team has got in the next round?

How to watch?

The draw will be broadcast live. The Alloa v Celtic is live on Premier Sports who will bring coverage of the draw. With it being a subscription service, fans without access can follow it on Premier Sports’ Twitter account where it will also be live.

Who is in the draw?

Hibs and Rangers have been joined in the hat for the next round by Hearts.

When is the fifth round?

The eight ties featuring the 16 winners from round four are scheduled to take place on the weekend of Saturday, February 12. However, expect four fixtures to be moved for television coverage.
