The Scottish Women's Cup is "our cup" says Hibernian assistant head coach Stewart McGuire as they prepare for Sunday's semi-final with Motherwell.

Hibs have won the trophy three years in a row and have taken home the last seven domestic knockout competitions.

"We don't want to let it go, and the girls will be determined to hold onto that," McGuire told BBC Scotland.

In the other last four tie at Forthbank in Stirling, league leaders Glasgow City beat Rangers 4-1.

Both games are being played back-to-back, with the matches being streamed on the BBC Sport Scotland website .

Hibernian clinched the trophy last year with an emphatic 8-0 win over Motherwell at Firhill, with Jamie-Lee Napier netting a hat-trick.

Motherwell were in SWPL2 at the time and since promotion have made a number of changes to the squad.

But, in three meetings this season with Hibs they have lost 4-0, 7-1, and two weeks ago 2-0. They will take comfort in keeping the score down in that last encounter, though the game was played days after Hibs had returned from a gruelling Champions League trip to Prague.

"I would like to think we've improved and closed the gap a bit on Hibs," said head coach Donald Jennow. "They are by far and away the favourites for the tie. We just need to approach it right and make it as competitive as we can.

"The cup defeat last year - it would just be going back to a negative memory. From my own perspective I've got pride. I'd like to at least make it more competitive than it was last time around."
