All well and good if we win it but we are very, very unlikely to and you're buying into an absolute fantasy.

We are right in amongst it at the bottom, another play off would be very bad for the club financially potentially.

More games and potential injuries to an already depleted squad in a relegation battle would be disastrous.

That “fantasy” happened in 1987, and it happened in the other cup in 2013.

Relegation is inevitable for us. If it isn’t this season, it’ll be in the next ten years. We will gain promotion once more as we always do. The cups are special.

I’d also like to add - if we won a semi final, the players would suddenly realise their league performances could be the difference between starting the final and sitting on the bench. As a result the league performances could improve further knowing they’d have that chance to play their part in a major success.

And IF we did actually win today - what could that do for confidence? Motherwell are the best non-scum team in the league right now - beating them away would be huge for belief.
