Saturday 21

SCOTTISH CUP (Fourth Round)

0 Clydebank v Hibs Kilbowie, Clydebank (2 mins from Singer Station). Hibs were a little flattered by their winning margin against Dunfermline, but should be able to take at least a replay from Kilbowie. 0 Hamilton v Motherwell Douglas Park. Hamilton (15 mins from Bus Station). A well-earned local derby for Hamilton. and ifyou‘re waiting for a prediction. forget it . . .

O Hearls V Celtic Tynecastle. Edinburgh (Buses 1.2. 3, 4. 33. 34, 44). IfCeltic do win this cup. no one can say they had the luck ofthe draw. Hearts home defeat by Rangers left this trophy as their last real chance this season. and they will be desperate to do well. All the makings ofa classic cup thriller.

0 Morton v St Mirren Cappielow. Greenock (5 mins from Cartsdyke Station). Another local derby. but the Premier League visitors will not relish the difficult journey down the Clyde.


0 Clyde V Airdrie Firhill, Glasgow (Buses l, 8. 21 , 57. 60. 61).

0 Motherwell v Falkirit Fir Park, Motherwell (all Motherwell buses pass ground). The expanded Premier Division is throwing up too many less than riveting fixtures: this is likely to be one such.

0 Rangers v Hibs Ibrox, Glasgow (2 mins from Ibrox Underground). Hamilton‘s win and comparisons with Berwick do their Premier status no justice - means that Rangers can devote their undivided attention to the Championship. Hibs have won three points in Edinburgh. but are unlikely to add to that today. FIRST DIVISION

0 Airdrie v Oueen oi the South

Broomfield, Airdrie (15 mins from Airdrie Station). The title-race remains wide open in this division, and Airdrie must win to sustain their own challenge.

0 Scottish Open Judo Championship Meadowbank Stadium, Edinburgh. 9am daily. £2 (£1). Entries from around a dozen countries will swell the strong representation at this year’s biggest-ever event. The popularity of the sport in Scotland is reflected by our good showing in international competition, and there should be some home medallists to cheer.

Saturday 21 I

0 Scotland v Ireland Murrayfield, Edinburgh. A sold-out Murrayfield will greet Scotland‘s first match in the 1987 Five Nation‘s Championship. Scotland grabbed a share ofthe title last year (throughout which they were heavily indebted to Gavin Hastings‘ points kicking) by stealing a win in Dublin, but will be looking to open their account with a more impressive display today against an Irish side fresh from their 17—0 drubbing of England.
