St Johnstone striker, Stevie May believes collecting the Betfred Cup would be “amazing” for both the team and himself.
The Scottish professional played in the Saints team which won the 2014 Scottish Cup final with a 2-0 victory against Dundee United at Celtic Park.
It brought the Perth team its first important trophy and now they have the chance to get the other major national cup in Scotland when they play against Livingston at Hampden Park on Sunday.
“It would be amazing personally and obviously for the club.
“Going so long in the history of the club without winning anything and then to win two in a relatively short space of time would be huge.
“The Scottish Cup itself was such a big thing at the time. It would be amazing to do that (again), for the fans as well as myself, and the younger players who are just starting out their careers.
“To get a trophy so early as I did would be really special for them as well. We have a chance, we have got ourselves here after some tough games.
“There is not much bigger than a cup final. There’s not been many over the years, so when they come around you have to make the most of them. We managed to do it the last time so the plan is to do it again.”
remarks that the 3-0 triumph against Hibernian in the semi-final, as well as the 3-0 victory over Motherwell at the weekend, will add to the player's confidence.
The 28-year-old said:
“I said it at the time how well we did in that semi-final game.
“It wasn’t as if it was a scrappy 1-0 win which you obviously would have taken at the time.
“It was similar to the weekend where we looked so confident and played such nice football at the same time as being hard to beat.
“If we can pair those two (things), it obviously gives us the best chance to get our hands on the trophy, so that is our aim.
“We know Livingston will make it hard for us but it’s about combating that and doing everything we can.
“We have played Livingston a few times this season and will work on a game plan that we think we can execute to win the game.”
