‘Boys as ready as they’ll ever be’

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Ryan Bowman says belief is high in the Motherwell camp as they count down to Saturday’s William Hill Scottish Cup final with Celtic.

Having had to knock out four Ladbrokes Premiership teams on their way to the showpiece match at Hampden Park, the striker says there’s no reason the Steelmen can’t go out and pick up their first trophy since 1991.

“Why not?” he said. “The boys will be as ready as they’ll ever be.

“We beat Hearts in the quarter finals. Aberdeen in the semis. Who is to say we can’t beat Celtic in the final?

“We’ve been on the pitch this week. The manager has been going through everything to make sure we are right at it.

“The intensity has been really high as expected and everyone has just got that buzz.”

For the first time since 1950/51, Motherwell will contest both national finals in the same season.

Having put in a strong showing against Celtic in the Betfred Cup final in November, before the tide turned after a red card for Cedric Kipre, Bowman says there’s plenty incentive.

“That spurs us on even more to do better this time,” he said. “That day was a bad day. You don’t want to pick up a runners up medal.

“We’ve now got another chance. We’ve earned that chance. Now we’re hoping we can go one step further and win it this time.”
