Falkirk will have to overcome Championship rivals Queen of the South if they are to progress to the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Peter Houston’s side will travel to Dumfries next month knowing that they are one win away from returning to Hampden Park for the first time since losing to Hibs in 2012.

Queens will likely start the match as bookmakers’ favourites after they beat cup holders St Johnstone 2-0 in the previous round.

The Bairns earned their place in today’s draw at Hampden Park courtesy of a 2-1 home win over Brechin City on Saturday.

The two sides last faced each other in the Scottish Cup in 2009 when Falkirk won 4-2 at home, the same year they progressed to the final where they lost to Rangers.

The quarter-finals will be played on the weekend of Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8.
