Two Scottish First Division sides entertain Premier opponents today hoping to emulate the feats of minnows south of the border and progress to the Tennents Scottish Cup semi-finals. Greenock Morton meet Kilmarnock, while Falkirk face another struggling team, Raith.

Falkirk are trying to reach the last four for the first time since they won the trophy in 1957. Their manager, Alex Totten, said: "We've beaten Dunfermline at Brockville and it will take a similar performance if we're to get through against Raith."

Dundee United, unbeaten in 13 matches, face Motherwell at Tannadice in a repeat of the 1991 final. Motherwell won 4-3 on that occasion under the management of Tommy McLean, who is now in charge of United.

"We are favourites but I don't buy that," McLean said. "Motherwell have been having a hard time in recent weeks but there is a lot of glory attached to a good cup run and reaching the semi-finals."
