Ross County v Dundee United

Holders Dundee United defend their trophy when taking on Ross County in their Scottish Cup fourth round replay at Victoria Park. The two sides served up a rather tedious scoreless draw in the first game at Tannadice ten days ago after previously appearing against each other in last season's memorable final.

Vital Quotes:

"The games are coming thick and fast now and we are all really looking forward to this one," Ross County manager Willie McStay told BBC Scotland. "The players were determined to put on a good show at Tannadice to make up for last season's final and they did that. They are now hoping to put on a good show and win through to the next round."

"We have found it quite hard at home this season because I think that after the season we had last year, people tend to sit in against us a bit more," Dundee United midfielder Scott Robertson told The Courier. "But away from home, they open up and that helps us because it makes for a more flowing game. It probably suits us to play away from Tannadice at the moment, although we know that our form at home is something we need to improve on. I do not think going up there is necessarily a bad thing, but it's going to be tough. We have been up to Dingwall plenty of times over the years so we know exactly what to expect."

Ross County Team News:

New signings Graham Garthland and Marc Fitzpatrick are both ineligible, while Darren McCormack and Darren Smith are still ruled out with injuries. However, striker Paul Di Giacomo could be back in action after spending three months out with a hernia.

Player to watch: Andy Barrowman

Former Rangers schoolboy who has good strength in attack.

Dundee United Team News:

Winger Craig Conway appeared off the bench in the recent victory over Mothewell and will probably have to settle for a similar role in Dingwall as he continues to work his way back towards maximum fitness. Defenders Scott Severin (foot) and Darren Dods (knee) are still unavailable.

Player to watch: Johnny Russell

Set his side on the way to a 2-0 win over Motherwell last week.
