Hibernian have been handed the opportunity to avenge their William Hill Scottish Cup final derby thrashing after being drawn at home to Hearts in the fourth round of this season's competition.

Hibs' last Scottish Cup tie was the 5-1 humiliation by their Edinburgh rivals at Hampden, but they are a much-improved team this season and sit level on points with Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Celtic, seven places above Hearts.

The draw also set up a Highland derby with Ross County hosting SPL rivals Inverness.
