Assistant boss Kenny Black has called for a positive reaction from the squad after last Sunday’s disappointing Cup exit.
Tomorrow’s opponents Aberdeen were victorious last week at Fir Park, securing their spot in the William Hill Scottish Cup Semi Final against Hibs at Hampden.
However, their success wasn’t without controversy and Scotland coach Black is hoping his players can utilise that motivation whilst remaining focused on securing a spot in European football next term.
He told MFC.tv: “It’s not often we’ve had to pick up the players this season but everyone connected with the club was extremely disappointed with how last Sunday panned out.
“There were a lot of different things that contributed to the defeat, all of which have been well covered. But the lads came in and trained well on Monday and Tuesday and quickly got over that.
“We’ve now got nine games to go until the end of the season; nine games to secure European football and what a marvellous achievement that would be.”
