Craig Levein happy with home Scottish Cup draw despite potentially tricky tie.

Craig Levein admits Hearts could face a potentially tricky tie in the fifth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup after disposing of Hibs.

The Jambos marched into the next round of the competition after Don Cowie’s late goal saw off the Hibees at Tynecastle yesterday.

The men in maroon have been rewarded with a match against either Albion Rovers or St Johnstone, and while the manager will wait and see who comes out on top in that rearranged fixture, he’s glad to be have been handed home advantage.

“I would think, but I might be wrong, that St Johnstone would win that tie,” he said. “Our record against St Johnstone recently isn’t great.

“If you ask me to pick a game I wouldn’t have picked that one, but we’re at home and that makes me feel good.”
