Heart of Midlothian have been drawn against The Spartans in the Scottish Cup fourth round.

The all-Edinburgh tie will see the League Two side host Steven Naismith's men having overcome Arbroath at Ainslie Park on Saturday. A result which led to the departure of Dick Campbell from the Smokies.

The Spartans won promotion from the Lowland League last season and have adapted well to their first campaign in the SPFL. They sit fourth in League Two having won five and lost just three of their 13 matches. 

Hearts currently use Spartans' Ainslie Park for the home games of the B team.

In three of the last five seasons Hearts have reached the final of the Scottish Cup. In the two campaigns they didn't, they were eliminated at the second round stage to Brora Rangers and the quarter-final to Celtic.

Ties are scheduled to be played on the weekend of January 20, 2024.
