Jonathan Obika was happy with his St Mirren goal contributions against the Brox- and is now looking forward to his first trip to face Rangers at Ibrox.

The Buddies face Rangers on Wednesday as the Premiership gets back underway. They prepared for this game with a 3-0 Scottish Cup win over East of Scotland League side Broxburn.

Obika got two as the Buddies fended off the sixth tier threat to progress to the round of 16. They will face Motherwell on the weekend of February eighth for a quarter-final berth.

In the meantime, Obika’s now looking forward to a tantalising but difficult Rangers task. Having frustrated the Gers in Paisley earlier this season, despite the 1-0 defeat, there’s evidence to suggest Jim Goodwin’s side can live with Steven Gerrard’s.

 

Obika was pleased with St Mirren’s weekend work and says his teammates have told him all about the Ibrox experience: “I was happy with the goals, I feel like we had a lot of chances.

“I feel the job is done so we look forward to Wednesday against Rangers. The first goal I remember the ball coming and I couldn’t even react to it! Thankfully it came off my knee.

“I think for the boys we needed to take our chances early in the second half. They made it difficult for us.

“This will be my first time at Ibrox. The boys have told me a bit about it and I know it’s going to be a bit different from this game.

“But we go in confident. All the boys have come fit and we have new signings so we’re looking forward to it. We all want stick together and the new signings have beefed us up a bit.”
