Sporting Mirren beat Madina Republicans FC 2-1 at home to setup the clash with Hearts and they will be going all out to replicate Samartex's giant-killing spree of the Phobians last season.

Hearts beat Sporting Mirren 2-0 on the opening day of the 2008/9 season and went on to win the league for that season.
