Hamilton v Dundee United

Holders Dundee United have an early kick-off as they visit Hamilton Academical at New Douglas Park for their Scottish Cup fifth round tie on Saturday afternoon. In the previous round they defeated Ross County on penalties after a couple of scoreless games. The Accies made it to this stage by overcoming Alloa Athletic.

Vital Quotes:

"It's a good tie for us. All the pressure is on them as they are the holders," Hamilton assistant manager Stuart Taylor told BBC Scotland. "They are a good side, well experienced, but they have certainly got their weaknesses and that is what we have highlighted to go and try to win the game. We've got a decent record against them in the past couple of seasons since we came up to the SPL so we just need to have the same discipline about us and be as positive as we have been in the last few seasons against them."

"We could quite easily be out of the cup, let's be honest about it," Dundee United manager BBC Scotland. "We missed the first penalty in the shootout against Ross County and had to rely on Stevie Banks and other guys to get us through. Every team who has won a cup or done well in one would probably look back to a moment in a certain game and say it proved pivotal for them. But Hamilton will be a massive test and I will be warning the players they can't afford to give teams chances."
