It is fair to say the Motherwell's 2018 Scottish Cup campaign started in low-key fashion. November's draw delivered Hamilton at home and pleased no one – not the day-time drinkers, ground-hoppers or those looking for an actual game of football.

The only positive thought about at trip to Dundee was that with United in the Championship we do not have to go there too often. Few Motherwell fans would have relished another journey to the City of Discovery, especially in February, but we undeniably had a strong chance to progress.

Motherwell v Hearts is a classic cup tie with history – fair to say mainly remembered on our side – but it still raised eyebrows that the BBC picked it for coverage rather than Aberdeen v Kilmarnock.  A match between managers Stephen Robinson and Craig Levein promised intrigue but a product to attract neutral fans did not seem to be on a menu – oh how wrong that assumption was.

It is one thing to be known as a cup team but Motherwell needlessly reinforced that image by not winning between the quarter and semi-finals. Indeed we scored only twice in that time, once from a penalty, so we did not rock up to Hampden full of confidence.
