An exciting weekend of William Hill Scottish Cup football awaits us as the remaining eight clubs try to book their place in the semi-finals. Ahead of the big games, we take a look at the form for each club…

Saturday, 5 March 2016

Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow – kick-off 12.30pm (live on Sky Sports)

Last five matches: DWWWW

Rangers’ recent form has saw them storm 14 points clear of second-placed Hibernian in the Scottish Championship, and secure a place in the quarter-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup. They will come into this match full of belief having already knocked out Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock in the last round of the competition. They have only conceded two goals in their last five matches, scoring seven.

Last five matches: WDWDD

Dundee are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions and their good form has lifted them into fifth place in the Scottish Premiership. Despite being held to a goalless draw to Dumbarton in the last round, they were comfortable winners in the replay at Dens Park, winning 5-0. They also earned a 0-0 draw with league leaders Celtic at Parkhead earlier this week so there will be no shortage of confidence when they take on Scottish Championship leaders Rangers on Saturday.

Victoria Park, Dingwall – kick-off 3pm

Last five matches: LLWLW

Ross County’s form has been mixed in recent weeks, suffering three defeats in their last five matches – most notably a 3-0 loss at home to Dundee United last weekend. They did however, bounce back from that defeat with a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock on Tuesday night. County recorded a 4-2 win over junior side Linlithgow Rose in the last round.

Last five matches: DLWWL

Dundee United have spent most of the season at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership but a recent upturn in form has saw them move within eight points of 11th-placed Kilmarnock, with a game in hand. They beat Partick Thistle in the last round and their 3-0 win over Ross County last weekend in Dingwall will no doubt give them belief that they can win again and reach the semi-finals of the cup.

Celtic Park, Glasgow – kick-off 12pm (live on Sky Sports)


Last five matches: WWWDD

Celtic’s lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership has been cut to four points after draws in their last two matches and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Sunday when Greenock Morton visit. They overcame Scottish Lowland League side East Kilbride in the last round, winning 2-0.

Last five matches: WLWLD

Morton come into this weekend’s quarter-final clash with Celtic in mixed form. They recently recorded an impressive 3-0 win over Hibernian at Easter Road and remain in the hunt for a play-off place, only three points behind fourth-placed Raith Rovers. They will be hoping to repeat their 2013 League Cup heroics against Celtic when they beat the Scottish champions 1-0 at Celtic Park.

Easter Road, Edinburgh – kick-off 2pm (live on BBC Scotland)

Last five matches: WWLLL

Hibernian have drifted 14 points adrift of Rangers at the top of the Scottish Championship having suffered three straight defeats. The form guide does not make good reading however they did overcome Premiership opposition in the last round of the cup – beating local rivals Heart of Midlothian 1-0 in a replay at Easter Road.

Last five matches: WWLDL

The William Hill Scottish Cup holders will be hoping to take one step closer to back-to-back finals with a win on Sunday although their recent form has been mixed. They have suffered recent defeats to Heart of Midlothian and Celtic in recent weeks although did record an impressive win over second-placed Aberdeen and knocked Motherwell out of the competition in the last round.
