boss John Hughes is delighted with his side's draw in the Scottish Cup.

One of the teams between Inverness or Bucky Tistle teams will face Ross County in the third round of the Scottish Cup. Matches below the championship level will be suspended for three weeks, after which the games will be resumed. Hughes now claims that he is happy with the draw his team has received at this stage.

“It’s an absolutely fantastic draw

,” Hughes said.

“It’s a great draw for the Highlands.

“But once again because of the Covid situation it will be really disappointing that the supporters will not get to see it.

“There will not be too much between the teams and it will be what happens on the day.

“It brought a smile to my face but we have so much football in front of us that we have to focus on and start picking up results.”

Hughes added on Ross Doohan return:

“Ross was always going to go back. It was on the cards before the Covid thing kicked in.

“We asked him to sit on the bench against Livingston just to give us cover and he was always going back. We are now pursuing another goalkeeper.”
