The last four tie at Hampden Park will take place on Saturday, May 8 with a 4pm kick-off and will be broadcast live on subscription channel Premier Sports.

The game is a repeat of the 2016 semi-final which Hibs won via a penalty shoot-out after a goalless draw, en route to winning the final against Rangers to claim the cup for the first time in 114 years.

Jack Ross’ side are undefeated against the Tangerines this season, having won twice on Tayside and drawn the Easter Road fixture 1-1 in December.
