This year's cup draw has provided us with yet another away tie. It's a shame to face Killie yet again but we do have nice memories of our last cup match there.
January 2003 and Motherwell are at the bottom of the SPL. We are playing some decent footie occasionally though and we have a couple of youngsters who are amongst the best in the league. We were optimistic but little did we know a cup run was in the offing!
The game was a bit of an anticlimax in all honesty and the sending off of a Killie player early in the second half ensured we would have the minimal of fuss in progressing. We didn’t need to over exert ourselves although we were almost punished late on when DuBourdeau was called on to make a good save.
We would definitely settle for another 1-0 penalty win on Saturday and we would also be happy with a similar run emerging. In 2003 we won at
So, the magic of the cup is here and we also get the benefit of a Killie pie. Roll on Saturday!
