28 Oct ‘County can win League Cup’
Jim McIntyre says Ross County have the belief to go and win the Scottish League Cup after their Highland derby victory over Inverness CT.
County sealed their place in the semi-finals with a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Jackson Irvine and Michael Gardyne. Greg Tansey grabbed a consolation for John Hughes’ men.
County haven’t reached a Cup final since 2010 and suffered a 3-0 loss to Dundee United but McIntyre says his men are confident that they can be on the winning side if they get there.
“When you get to a semi-final, you have got to believe you can go on and actually win it,” said McIntyre.
“It’s about winning the semi-final now.
“It’s been a long time since this club had a day out at Hampden and the record in the cups has not been great.
“We wanted to make sure this season that we tried to get to the latter stages and we have got to the semi-final now.
“It’s nice to get that monkey off our back and some of our play was fantastic – we should have scored more goals.
“But while the score is at 2-0 it can become nervous and that’s the way the game panned out. Jacko scored a great header and I thought in the second half we were excellent.
“We controlled most of it. We had some real good opportunities to kill the game, but unfortunately for us we never took them.”
