FOOTBALL Saturday 7



0 Celtic V Motherwell Celtic Park. Glasgow (Buses 61. 62.64). Home advantage and greater incentive should rule out a repeat of the Fir Park draw in December. but Motherwell can be stubborn opposition.

o Falklrkv Rangers Brockville. Falkirk ( 100 yards from Grahamston Station). Davie Cooper has chosen this match to excel in already this

season. notably in 215-1 victory on this ground. Falkirk may keep it closer today. but not close enough to bring tangible reward.

o Hamiltonv Hearts Douglas Park. Hamilton (15 mins from Bus Station). Accies have narrowed the gap at the bottom. and a point today would cheer them even further.

0 Hibs v Aberdeen Easter Road. Edinburgh(Buses4.5. 15.42.44). 0 St Mirren v Dundee Love Street. Paisley ( 10 mins from Gilmour Street Station). A rather pointless meeting of the two middle-of~the-tab|e clubs.


0 Dunfermline v Dumbarton East End Park. Dunfermline ( 15 mins from Stations). One of two crucial matches in the title race today. Home side could blunt Sons chaHenge.

o Morton v Kilmarnock Cappielow. Greenock (5 mins from Cartsdyke Station). This is the other. with a victory crucial for the free-scoring Morton.

o Partick Thistle v Forlar Firhill, Glasgow (Buses 1.8. 21.57. 60, 61). SECOND DIVISION

0 Ayr V Meadowbank Somerset Park. Ayr(10mins from Ayr Station). Two of the major title contenders clash in this key fixture.


SCOTTISH CUP (Filth Round)

0 Hearts v Motherwell Tynecastle, Edinburgh (Buses l. 2. 3. 4, 33, 34, 44). A clever Robertson free-kick

_ cup FINAL

f Jams; smirs‘faff 3 " ' ’4? Roddy MacDonald scores against Motherwell, a sight Hearts lans would love to see repeated when the clubs clash in the Cup quarter-final (see above). Hearts and Dundee Utd are the current lavourites, but the way this competition has gone we'll probably finish up with a Fortar v Raith Roverslinal. (Kenny Mathieson)

saw Hearts through against favourites Celtic. but Motherwell had a good win at Hamilton. and reminded Hearts oftheir ability to crowd midfield and hit on the break in the drawn League match last week. A repeat would doubtless suit the Lanarkshire side today. while Hearts must see a chance to atone for last season‘s disappointments.

0 Clydebank v Dundee or Meadowbank Kilbowie. Glasgow (2 mins from Singer Station). The Bankies squad which eliminated Hibs watched their opponents first replay at Meadowbank. and won't have lost any sleep over the prospect of meeting either.



0 Rangers v Hamilton lbrox. Glasgow (2 mins from lbrox Underground). A fixture not short on controversy this season. but unlikely to produce another major upset.


0 Airdrie v East File Broomfield. Airdrie (15 mins from Airdrie Station).

0 Clyde v Dunfermline Firhill. Glasgow (Buses 1.8. 21.57. 60, 61'). o Morton v Brechin Cappielow. Greenock (5 mins from Cartsdyke Station).
