Hibernian continue their defence of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup against SWFL 1 North side Dundee United in the 3rd Round, while last year’s beaten finalists Glasgow City face Stirling University.

Dundee United are unbeaten in their league but play two levels below top flight title-chasing Hibs.

Although Glasgow City have an all-SWPL 1 tie with Stirling University, they recently beat the students 6-0 away.

Kelty Hearts face a massive task at home to Celtic, who are three divisions above their hosts.

Edinburgh Caledonia are another SWFL second division side still in the competition and hopeful of further progress, sitting third while their visitors Renfrew are mid-table one step up the pyramid.

Aberdeen and Motherwell are at opposite ends of SWPL 2 but high-scoring Well were held 1-1 away to the Dons at the start of June.

St Johnstone are third in the same division but have an awkward test at East Fife, who lead SWFL 1 North with only two points dropped.

Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale give away a one-division advantage to visitors Hamilton Academical but the Accies are just one place off the bottom of SWPL 1.

Spartans are bottom of the top flight and go to mid-table tier two outfit Hearts.
