Spartans will have the chance to play live on television in the Scottish Cup if they can get past Berwick Rangers in Tuesday’s last 16 replay.

The winner of that tie will travel to Easter Road to play Hibs in the quarter-finals and there is now the extra incentive of a match on television plus a cash windfall, as the game will be screened live on Sky Sports with a 12.45 kick-off on Sunday, March 8.

The other matches picked for live broadcast are Queen of the South v Falkirk, which will be screened by BBC Scotland on Friday, March 6 at 7.35pm, while Dundee United v Celtic is live on Sky Sports on March 8, kick off at 3.30pm.
