Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale’s William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round clash with East Kilbride a week on Wednesday has been made all-ticket – with LTHV fans only getting 80 seats.

The tie on January 20, which was originally postponed last Saturday due to snow, has taken heightened importance due the fact that the winner will host Celtic in the last 16 of the competition.

East Kilbride’s K-Park only holds 500 people and the Lowland League outfit are expecting a sell-out with the stakes so high for the winner.

East of Scotland side Lothian Thistle said in a statement: “East Kilbride have announced our Scottish cup tie with them will now be all-ticket.

“We have a allocation of 80. Due to high demand from our club – it is only fair we do it this way – so it will be done on a first come, first served basis. The tickets will be on sale from the clubrooms – 49 Fords Road, EH11 3HS – from 9am this Saturday (January 16).

“No tickets can be pre-booked – they will be only be sold on Saturday. Prices are £10 for adult and £5 for kids.”

Lothian Thistle are also running a supporters bus for 49 fans. The cost will be £5 for adults and £2 for children. Seats must be bought alongside a match-ticket on Saturday.
