Callum Davidson says St Johnstone must aim for more Hampden glory after a 3-0 League Cup semi-final win over Hibs.
Goals from Jason Kerr, Shaun Rooney and Craig Conway sealed an excellent win in Mount Florida for the Saints, setting up a League Cup final clash with either Livingston or St Mirren next month.
Davidson says that without Celtic or Rangers present in the cup, they have taken the first big step towards glory: “We’ve put ourselves in the position now where we’ve got an opportunity. The Old Firm aren’t there.
“They’ve dominated for years, so when these chances come you’ve got to try and take them. I said that to the players — and I thought they did. I thought Hibs were good but we got our goals at just the right time. I’m pleased to see us score two set-play goals.
“Two fantastic headers which gave us a really good platform for the rest of the game. We probably got the little bit of luck we haven’t had this season. We’ve had goals going in off the back of heads but we dug in. Zander pulled off a great save and a couple of times the woodwork saved us.”
But the Saints boss says that to enjoy this win fully, they must win their next game at Hampden: “It doesn’t mean anything to me unless we win it. It’s a great achievement for the club. It means a lot to me but I want to win it. I’d rather look forward to the final and see if we can win it.”
