“It was nice to get the goal and get us off the mark and it was a good win in the end.

“It was important to get the goal straight after they did. There was a bit of a deflection and the lads gone through and finished well. Then a great bit of skill from Ryan Christie and a brilliant header from Kenny and we were comfortable again. Then second half Gary got the goal to put us 4-1 up and we were in cruise control really. Then we just got a bit slack. It was disappointing to concede another goal, but the main thing was just to be in the next round.

“There’s no easy games in the cup and we got another home draw so it’s nice to have the home games and get the fans in. Hopefully they come out in their numbers again. The aim is to go and try win the cup so we’ve another tough game and hopefully we can do it.

“The attacking threat we have gives us goals from all over. From defence to midfield going forward we’ve got goals in us. You see the likes of Gary today. Once he goes one on one he’s very hard to get a hold of and he done brilliant for the second goal. You have Niall on the other side and Christie who loves to drive with the ball then Kenny and Shinnie. I wouldn’t put myself in the category of driving with the ball. I think I tried it once and lost it! It’s great to play in the team at the minute with full of confidence.

“We take confidence into the Hibs game. Last time Gary scored a good goal then we were under the cosh a bit, but we dug in well and did what we needed to do to get the points. The performance up here in the last game against them was excellent so hopefully same again. We know it’s going to be a difficult game and Shinnie is out, so someone will come in for him. We’ve got a strong squad at the minute and there’s probably three lads not even on the bench, so it shows how strong it is. We’re going to need that between now and the end of the season so I’m looking forward to it.”
