St Johnstone will be looking to make it a Championship treble to get to the League Cup final.
The Perth side face high flying Hibs at the end of January for a place in the March Hampden showpiece.
They have defeated Rangers and Morton en route to the last four, and Saints boss Tommy Wright admitted that gauging just how good this promotion chasing Hibs team isn’t easy.
“It’s hard to compare how they’re doing in their league to how we’re doing in ours,” he said.
“They certainly beat Dundee United well in the last round.
“I would imagine their budget is bigger than mine and they’ve got a really good squad.
“There’s a nice blend of young players and experienced ones.
“With the resources they’ve got, they’re a Premiership club playing in the Championship.
“They’ll want to do well in the cups but their priority is getting back in the Premiership.
“If they do get back, with their squad, they’ll probably do well.”
Ross County will face Celtic in the other semi-final.
The likes of Darnell Fisher and Steven MacLean were open with their wishes to avoid Ronny Deila’s men in the draw, but Wright insisted he didn’t have any preferences.
“I really wasn’t bothered who we got,” the Northern Irishman pointed out.
“The bottom line is we’re in a semi-final and a cup game is a one-off.
“We feel we’re well equipped to do well against Hibs.
“We’re used to playing in semi-finals in recent seasons.
“That will hopefully help us, but we’ll still have to go there and do well on the day.
“We’ve had more heartache than joy in semi-finals, but our last one was the Scottish Cup and it showed that we have learned how to get over that last hurdle and make it to a final.”
The long wait to the semi-finals won’t faze the Perth men according to Wright.
“It probably helps us over the next couple of months to have this semi to look forward to,” he noted.
“It’s strange timing. I think the transfer window closes the next morning after the second semi.
“We’ll focus on the league games now. There’s a Scottish Cup game that will come before it as well.
“We’ve got lots to play for.
“The players certainly won’t be thinking about it now that the draw has been made.”
