Sunday, March 9

Inverness v Dundee United

Inverness midfielder Ross Draper is suspended for the William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final, and will sit out both Sunday's game and the Scottish Premiership contest with Hibernian on Wednesday. Caley Thistle otherwise have a full squad.

United's Curtis Good has joined Ryan Gauld (hip) and John Souttar (Achilles) on the sidelines, with the on-loan Newcastle defender having picked up a hip injury while playing for Australia in their midweek friendly with Ecuador in London.

Top goalscorers (all competitions): Billy McKay (Inverness) 20; Nadir Ciftci (Dundee Utd) 10

Referee: William Collum

Our verdict: Inverness 1 Dundee United 2

Rangers v Albion Rovers

Rangers boss Ally McCoist expects left-back Lee Wallace to be fit despite missing a couple of days of training after complaining of tiredness. Chris Hegarty (ankle) and Kyle Hutton (broken leg) will miss out despite the pair stepping up their recovery work after injury. Lewis MacLeod (knee), Ross Perry (ankle) and Nicky Clark (broken foot) still have some time to go before they will be ready for a first-team return.

Albion midfielder Liam Cusack is struggling to be fit due to a toe injury. Manager James Ward has a selection dilemma of the right kind after David Crawford scored twice in a midweek training game to play himself into contention for a starting role as Ryan Donnelly is cup-tied.

Top goalscorers (all competitions): Jon Daly (Rangers) 19; Scott Chaplain & Gary Phillips (Albion) 6

Our verdict: Rangers 3 Albion Rovers 0
