Lewis Ferguson | Betfred Cup QF Preview

“I am fine, I just went over my ankle at the weekend, but it was nothing too serious. I managed to play on.

“I am fine, I am fit and ready to go.

“It is a massive game. The winner goes to Hampden for a semi-final.

“There is a lot at stake. It is a tough place to go but we are full of confidence. Our last game against Hearts gave us a lot of confidence, we will take that down with us and hopefully we can get a result.

“It will be a different type of game from the one at the weekend.

“I think at the weekend it was all about getting the result. The game itself wasn’t great but at the end of the day it was three points.

“I think it will be a very different game. I think we will be able to play more football and we are up against a different opposition who offer different threats.

“I am just really looking forward to it.

“It will be massive for them (Hearts’ win against Hibs). They will be full of confidence, I think they had been lacking a bit of confidence the last few weeks as they have not been getting the results they wanted.

“That game was massive for them. Coming off the back of a big derby win they will be full of confidence and preparing themselves to go and beat us.

“We will have to be at our best to put on a good performance and more importantly go and get the win.

“I had some real highs and some real lows in the cups last year, but it is something that you love playing in.

“There is always a different type of atmosphere when you play in a cup game because at the end of the day there is only one team that is going to go through into the next round.

“There is a lot at stake, but they are kind of games you want to be playing in, these big games. You know what’s at stake with the chance to go back to the national stadium to play in a semi-final, its massive for both teams.

“On a personal level I would just love to get back to Hampden and put in a really good performance.”
