Hibernian striker Jason Cummings is "100%" confident that his side will overcome Hearts in their Scottish Cup fifth round replay.

Hibs rallied from 2-0 down at Tynecastle through late goals from Cummings and Paul Hanlon to ensure a replay at Easter Road on 16 February.

"I'm confident we can beat Hearts, 100%," Cummings told BBC Scotland.

"We showed in the second-half that we can give them a good game and beat them."

Hearts looked to be on course for the quarter-finals when leading through Arnaud Djoum and Sam Nicholson strikes, but Cummings always believed his side would find a way back into the match.

"I knew that we were going to come back," said Cummings, who scored his 19th goal of the season to spark the revival.

"I had faith in the boys. We said at half-time the next goal was crucial and luckily we got the next goal. I thought then we were going to win it.

"I reckon if there was five or 10 minutes more we would have won the game. I'm just delighted for the boys."

Cummings also feels that his partnership with on-loan Celtic striker Anthony Stokes is developing with every match.

"It's a pleasure to play with someone like Stokesy. He's been in the game a lot, got a lot of experience and he's a top player.

"I can feel us getting a good relationship on the pitch. We've got a good relationship off the pitch. We get on really well in the changing room and he's a good lad."
