Manager James McPake spoke to the media ahead of the match, he said “It’s a Quarter Final, the boys know that we haven’t had a cup run and I’ve stood here and spoke often enough to say we are desperate for one at this club and we’ve got  a chance now.”

“They showed you can win two (last season) and it is a great job that Callum has done. What’s in my head just now is just getting past the quarter final. They are a very good side. They’ve lost a couple of key players but have recruited very well.”

“I’ve got alot of respect for Callum. I did my pro licence with him and he’s a very good coach and manager. He’s got a good staff in with him so it’s no surprise that he has done so well.”

Team news

Danny Mullen misses out through injury. Charlie Adam and Ryan Sweeney will be assessed ahead of the match.

Our memory match however, comes from season 1967/68 when we done battle with the Perth Saints In the Semi-Final in this competition at Tannadice.
Thanks to two own-goals from George Miller and third from Jim Mclean from the penalty spot, the Dark Blues would make it to the final.
