Reilly ready for Hibs

11th January 2016

Gavin Reilly happy with Scottish Cup draw and can't wait to face city rivals.

Gavin Reilly believes Hearts have got the perfect tie after being drawn against Hibs in the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The Jambos have been paired with the Hibees in the fifth round and all eyes will be on Robbie Neilson's side for the second round in a row.

Speaking to Hearts News after the draw, the in-form striker said: "It's an absolutely great tie, not just for us but for the whole of Scottish football.

"We had the tie of the round against Aberdeen last week and now we've got it again, but x10!

"Derbies tend to take care of themselves so it will be a great spectacle.

"We'll go into the game full of confidence and we definitely feel we can beat anybody at Tynecastle.

"It's the perfect draw and I can't wait to be a part of it."
