This is without a doubt THE match of the Scottish Cup fourth round with local bragging rights up for grabs and also the prize of a place in the fifth round of the competition. Indeed with celtic once again running away with the Scottish Premiership title, this is the best chance for either of these sides to lift some silverware this term. Will both managers will taking this match seriously? You bet they will!

This is a very tough game to call. Heart of Midlothian closed 2017 with a nine-match unbeaten run although their last three outings of the year ended in goal-less draws, these including a stalemate against Hibernian at Tynecastle Park. Nevertheless the emphatic 4-0 win over Celtic cannot be ignored and this is evidence that the Jambos are clearly capable of great things in front of their home fans, should the mood take them.

Hibernian went into the winter break in less-than-impressive form with just two wins in their last nine outings across all competitions. Nevertheless they remain firmly in the top-four in the Scottish Premiership table as things stand and they enjoyed a win over Hearts when the sides clashed in October. As such they will fancy their chances of edging past their local rivals on Sunday afternoon.

We're far from convinced about either side's chances of winning this weekend. Despite their excellent unbeaten run, the Jambos have only managed a mere three wins since October with the remainder of their matches ending in stalemate. Indeed the last two meetings between these sides have returned a combined total of just one goal and the evidence suggests that another low-scoring stalemate could be on the cards on Sunday afternoon.
