Don Cowie wants to match his first achievement as a Ross County player and win this season’s Irn-Bru Cup.
Cowie captained Scott Leitch’s side that won the trophy on penalties against Clyde in 2006 and with the Staggies in the last four of this year’s competition, he has his sights on doing it again.
County earned their place in the semi-finals with a 2-1 win over Motherwell Colts on Saturday with Ross Stewart’s brace cancelling out Adam Livingstone’s equaliser at Fir Park.
The Dingwall club will be overwhelming favourites to take the title off their Highland neighbours Caley Thistle, with Edinburgh City, Connah’s Quay Nomads and one of either East Fife or Bohemians awaiting in the last four.
The onus for Cowie now is to make that repeat achievement a reality.
He said: “I won it many years ago but it’s just nice to win a game.
“It’s been three without a win and it can help for the league form as well. We need to take the confidence back home and we need to get back to winning ways in the league.
“It was a special time for me personally and for the club. But they’ve obviously gone on to bigger things since then in winning the League Cup. But at the time it was very special and I would like to do it again.
“A home game would be nice as no one will want to play us in Dingwall. We’re in the hat for the semi-final now so let’s go on and win it.”
County midfielder Cowie was involved in the sending off of Motherwell’s Christian Mbulu, for an apparent barge on the former Wigan Athletic man, which he felt was harsh.
Cowie added: “To be fair, it probably isn’t a sending off, he just caught me off guard.
“It was probably a bit of overexuberance from him because they have just equalised. The referee probably thought he meant it more than he has.”
