Hibs have discovered the three opponents they will have to overcome if they hope to return to Hampden Park this season for the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.
They will face a trip to Stranraer in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup should they beat Queen of the South tomorrow night in Dumfries, then if Jack Ross’s men progress against Stranraer they will have a home tie in the quarter-finals against Motherwell or Greenock Morton.
Pick of the fixtures for the fourth round is a possible Glasgow derby between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox, should Steven Gerrard’s men beat Cove Rangers tonight.
