HIBS take on Dundee United in the fourth and final League Cup quarter-final tonight – so who will join Celtic, Ross County and St Johnstone in the last four?

Both sides had great results at the weekend so it’s not an easy one to call and it could in the end come to which team fancies a cup run ahead of potentially three points in vital league matches at the weekend.

I’ve read nothing to suggest either manager will rotate but it’s worth keeping an eye on team news and possibly even wait for line-ups before having a punt.

Bookies have reacted to Hibs ending Rangers’ perfect league start by making them hot favourites to win at Easter Road.

Alan Stubbs’s men will take great confidence from Sunday’s result but have had only two full days to pick themselves up for the cup clash. If Hibs aren’t jaded they could be worth backing at 5-4 McBookie.

They knocked out Aberdeen in the previous round and now have Rangers’ scalp but I’d prefer a bigger price.

United handed new boss Mixu Paatelainen his first win against Ross County so the ex-Hibs player and manager will be looking forward to his return to Easter Road. The Tangerines are 12-5 at bet365 with the draw paying the same price at McBookie.

Best bet could be Jason Cummings to score at any time at 9-5 with Paddy Power. The cocky young striker netted in the wins against Aberdeen and Rangers as well as in the 6-2 Challenge Cup defeat to the Ibrox men at the start of the season.

Cummings has scored in his last five and has eight in 10 outings. To score first he is 6-1 at Ladbrokes.

Billy Mckay hit United’s goal at the weekend and is 15-8 with McBookie to net.

Eight of the last 10 meetings between the sides have seen both score and that pays 14-19 at 888sport.

      Greg, team with most desire for a cup win might do it. Will see what team news throws and what managers are saying in the morning.

    Hibs played Dundee Utd in this competition last year..3-3 after extra time and knocked out on pens.
    Hibs have improved a lot since then, Dundee Utd have went backwards losing Mackay Steven, Armstrong and the likes..Dundee Utd used to losing games ATM. Hibs used to winning!

    Hibernian to follow up their win against rangers. They are strong at home as well.

    Looks like Utd could benefit from the extra day off I would just about back them 2-1.
    Will play penalties as well as this could be really close.

    I am also on Cummings AGS @ 2.8 with PP although I am playing with a slightly lower stake than normal

    I’m going to put some on Cummings ATS rather than hibs win as though hibs beat Rangers it was more to do with Rangers missing chance after chance and they dominated the game but Hibs defended well. However if Utd get as many chances as Rangers did i would expect Billy Mckay to put some away.

    Cant see teams being rotated for this game this is a great chance for them to get to a semi.Hibs maybe beat Rangers on Sun and Utd beat Ross but am not taking that into account its a hard one to call but I think Hibs will edge it.

      Alva Glen, as I said this morning – no rotation.
      Hoping for goals and a Cummings goal.
