McHugh: We’re not going for a day out

Thursday, November 23, 2017

Motherwell have already seen off Ross County, Aberdeen and Rangers, amongst others, along the way to reach the Betfred Cup final.

And having won all seven of their fixtures in the competition to date, ‘Well captain Carl McHugh says the team won’t be heading back to Hampden Park just to enjoy the occasion against Celtic on Sunday.

“We’re not going there for a day out or to make up the numbers, we’ve worked really hard to get to this stage,” said McHugh.

“We’ve played a lot of games in the cup going back to the group stage games in July. We’ve come through tough quarter-finals, semi-finals and even up at Ross County in the round before that.

“We don’t want to go there to have a day out, we want to win the cup.”

There’s been a complete change in the mindset this year to last season. The gaffer has to take the credit for that with the players he’s brought in and the mindset in general.

“Last year we would have been delighted to go to Aberdeen and get a point but this year we went on Saturday and fully expected to win the game.

“That’s a shift in the mindset and I think you’ve seen that in the results and performances.”
