Only our best will be good enough

Paisley Daily Express - - Haywood: We Will Not Tripp Up With Clan Coach -

St Mir­ren man­ager Jack Ross in­sists his side will have to be at their best to progress from their Bet­fred Cup group.

The Bud­dies have been drawn to face Partick This­tle, Liv­ingston, Air­drie and Stran­raer in the pre­cur­sor to the league ac­tion kick­ing off.

But hav­ing as­sessed the draw, Ross be­lieves Saints have ev­ery op­por­tu­nity of mak­ing it through to the knock­out stages.

Ross said:“It’s a tough group. It’s ar­guably, on pa­per, the hard­est group.

“We’ll ap­proach it se­ri­ously as if it is just as im­por­tant as our first league games. We did that last year when I was at Al­loa and we won all our group games and con­tin­ued that mo­men­tum and form into the open­ing pe­riod of the sea­son. That’s what we will look to do again.

“I want to go in and win ev­ery group game be­cause it sees you qual­ify for the lat­ter stages but sec­ond of all it con­tin­ues the mo­men­tum we had from the end of last sea­son and cre­ates a mo­men­tum go­ing into the open­ing league game.”
