James McDonaugh believes the fact Hibernian will face Celtic in the fourth round of the Scottish Youth Cup (Sunday 25 November) is the toughest possible draw, but stresses the young team in bottle green are capable of beating anybody.
After defeating Fort William 13-1 at the Training Centre on Sunday, Hibernian will now lock horns with current Cup holders, Celtic, who knocked out Hearts at the weekend.
McDonaugh concedes that a very tricky encounter awaits his squad, but emphasises the players can produce a winning performance when the tie comes around.
McDonaugh said: "It's probably the hardest draw we could have got, but the bonus is that we've been drawn at home.
"Celtic have a great record in the competition and are the current holders which underlines the calibre of the opposition we will face.
"We've got a very tough game against probably the best team in the competition to look forward to, but if we have all of our squad available for selection then we are capable of winning.
"I watched Celtic's tie against Hearts and learned a lot from it, so we will plan and prepare the right way for a challenging fixture."
Remember that the under-20s are back in action tomorrow night (24 October, kick off 7pm) when the Mini Derby takes place at New Victoria Park, Newtongrange against Hearts.
