SPFL chief Neil Doncaster with the Betfred Cup trophy.

Hearts will face Aberdeen after managing to defeat Motherwell 2-1 in front of the BT Sport cameras on Friday night.

Derek McInnes' side were still playing when the draw was made as the Dons needed a last-minute Andy Considine goal to avoid exiting the competition at the hands of Dundee. Sam Cosgrove's goal in the 103rd minute was enough to set up the clash at Tynecastle.

The ties will be played the midweek of September 24-26.
