“The gaffer wanted us to watch it so we could have inspiratio­n to what it means to everybody.

“It’s these little triggers of emotion that will hopefully give you that extra five, 10% going into the game. We need to do it for the club and also the community.”

Carrick began the season with his parent club and admits it was been a campaign of highs and lows after getting his hands on a League One winner’s medal.

He added: “I played pretty much the first half of the season at Livingston after I broke my hand and I qualified for a League One winner’s medal.

“It’s definitely been an interestin­g season in terms of being in the mix of both the positive of going for a title and then being in the fight against relegation.

“It’s something that I’ve definitely learned from going through both these experience­s.”

Blue Brazil boss Gary Locke reckons that the positivity that has been built up at Central Park in recent weeks, despite their last placed finish in the SPFL.

He explained: “It will be a hard game but we are looking forward to it. Going up to Elgin last weekend and keeping a clean sheet against a side going for a play-off place was good preparatio­n for this game.”

Shaun Rutherford is out after the appeal against his dismissal in last month’s game with Forfar was not successful, with Locke saying: “I was really surprised by that decision. We have to accept it but it was a surprise.”
