City and Celtic meet in last eight
 Women's Football News 29 Aug 2012
The draw for the quarter finals of this season's Henson Scottish Cup competition has taken place, with some exciting ties in prospect. 
The draw was made live on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard and saw the two First Division sides that remain in the competition avoid each other, while the two all-Premier League ties look like they will be highly competitive fixtures.
Cup holders Glasgow City must overcome league challengers Celtic if they are to continue the defence of their trophy and potentially achieve a clean sweep of domestic competitions. The solitary meeting between the two sides in the league so far this season resulted in a 3-1 away victory for City after a tough ninety minutes against the Hoops. Celtic will be looking for their third consecutive Scottish Cup victory over Premier League opposition, following defeats of Kilmarnock and Spartans in previous rounds, though their task will be tough considering City's superlative domestic form this season that has saw them yet to drop a point.
In the other all-Premier League tie, Rangers will welcome Forfar Farmington to Glasgow as they seek to prolong their cup involvement against their high flying visitors. The only other meeting between the teams this season ended in a 0-0 draw in Angus, with the teams now divided by the league split. Rangers will provide Forfar with their first Premier League opposition in this year's Scottish Cup competition, after victories over Viewfield Rovers and Airdrie United in previous rounds, with Rangers having defeated SWPL rivals Inverness City in the 3rd round. Farmington will be looking to at least match their League Cup performance that saw them reach the semi finals before losing out to eventual winners Glasgow City.
Premier League side Hamilton Academicals will host First Division leaders Hibernian Reserves, with a competitive match in prospect. Though Hamilton have finished in the bottom six of the SWPL table, they have hit a good run of form since the split and will be looking to progress against opponents from a lower division for the third consecutive round in this year's Scottish Cup competition.
Finally, the SWPL's second placed side Hibernian will travel across the country to face First Division League Cup winners Queen's Park in Glasgow. Having already dispatched First Division opposition in the form of Paisley Saints Ladies and Celtic Reserves on their road to the quarter finals, the Hibees will be confident that they can progress against the Glasgow side. However the Spiders' prior success in cup competitions so far this season will offer them hope that they can cause an upset.
The Henson Scottish Cup 2012 quarter final ties will take place on Sunday 30 September.
Quarter Final draw: 
Glasgow City v Celtic
Hamilton Academicals v Hibernian Res
Queen's Park v Hibernian
Rangers v Forfar Farmington
