Last updated : 11 January 2007 By Steve Forbes

It was revealed this afternoon that Sky Sports will screen the Scottish Cup 3rd Round replay between Hibs and Aberdeen on Thursday January 18th.

The game will have a 7.45pm kick off.

Hibs boss John Collins has urged the Hibs support to come out in numbers after a pathetic home support turned out for Aberdeen last night, the crowd was a shocking 7905(RED ARMY!!)

Collins had praise for the Hibs support that turned up at the game despite in being our second midweek trip to Aberdeen this season.

Collins said:

"They were wonderful, very noisy and while we would have liked to have won the game last night, now it will be nice to win the tie in front of them under the floodlights at Easter Road. Hopefully, they'll come along in their numbers and drive us on."

Also, because of the replay, the planned SPL clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle on the following Saturday has been moved back 24 hours and the game will now take place on the Sunday.
