Our prediction for this Scottish Cup match:
A place in the Scottish Cup semis will be at stake when Hibernian and Motherwell square off against each other at Easter Road. The Hibs set up a meeting with the Well by beating Stranraer 4-0, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Friday’s football game. Left-back Josh Doig should recover in time to face Motherwell, while Chris Cadden is definitely out of contention through injury. The Well, on the other hand, defeated Morton after penalties in the last 16, with the team beating Hamilton 1-0 in their last league match.
The visitors are after their fifth consecutive win in all competitions, but beating Hibernian at Easter Road is easier said than done. A close match is on the cards in the Scottish Cup quarter-final, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Bevis Mugabi has overcome his long-term injury, while Jordan Roberts is a major doubt. All Scott Fox, Trevor Carson, Sherwin Seedorf, Liam Donnelly, and Charles Dunne remain in the recovery room.
