The match will take place on Tuesday, February 2 (kick-off 7.45pm), with the second semi between Rangers and St Johnstone played at Hampden Park the following evening (kick-off 7.35pm).[LNB]Both semis were played at the national stadium last year but attracted low crowds, leading to criticism over a lack of atmosphere.[LNB]However, the decision may not go down well with St Mirren boss Gus MacPherson, who wanted his side's match to be at Hampden.[LNB]"The players would love to play at their national stadium," MacPherson said on Monday, fearing the game would be played at Easter Road.[LNB]"I have experienced it as a Kilmarnock player when we played St Mirren and, although it wasn't the biggest crowd, any player would much rather have the opportunity to play at Hampden."[LNB][LNB] Scottish CIS Cup Winner 2009/10.
