All three local teams were in the hat for the Scottish Cup Fifth Round draw today (Tuesday).

Rock band Biffy Clyro made draw, pairing the victors of tonight's Falkirk v Partick Thistle match with either Hearts or St Johnstone.

The tie would be at Tynecastle or McDiarmid Park on the first weekend of February.

Stenhousemuir's long-running saga with Threave Rovers is the first step on their journey that will take them to Stranraer - in the fourth round - if they can win their replay.

After that, the victors meet Motherwell.

East Stirlingshire face Buckie Thistle on January 18 in the fourth round and the winner will host either Brechin City or Queen of the South.

Ties are due to be played on February 5 or 6, weather and previous ties permitting.
