“You have to give credit to their fans and their players; they played some nice football at the right times.
“We created opportunities as well, but it was just unfortunate that we couldn’t score. The main thing is that nobody has come away with any injuries. We dust ourselves down now, fly home tomorrow and look forward to the Scottish Cup game on Saturday.

“We want to go as far as we can in the cup.
We have had cup success since I have been here but not in this competition. It would be nice to do that for the city.
“We will be raring to go”
