Hibs face Stranraer at Stair Park on April 17

The match against the Blues is a repeat of the third-round meeting between the two teams in 2002, and will be screened live by BBC Scotland on Saturday April 17 with a 12.15pm kick-off.

Goals from Christian Doidge and Martin Boyle secured a 3-1 win against Queen of the South at Palmerston Park on Monday night in the third round and should Jack Ross lead his side to victory against the League Two outfit then a tie against either Motherwell or Morton awaits in the quarter-finals.

The weekend’s Scottish Cup action begins with Forfar's home tie against Dundee United being shown on BBC Scotland on Friday April 16 with a 7.45pm kick-off.
