IAIN DIACK says his side will go into Saturday's quarter final showdown with confidence after they made it two wins on the spin.

The Reds welcome East of Scotland Conference A side Hill of Beath to Beechwood Park as they bid to make it into the semi finals of the South Challenge Cup.

Sauchie have already beaten Lowland League sides Edinburgh University and Dalbeattie Star in the competition so far, while their form has been boosted by timely wins over Tynecastle and Eyemouth United.

The former Albion Rovers man told Advertiser Sport: "It's certainly a game that is winnable for us.

"I am sure Hill of Beath will be saying the same thing, but it's a game we go into with a lot of confidence.

"If somebody had said to me that at the start of my first season we would have been in with a chance of promotion and still be in two cups at the end of February, I'd have snapped the hand off you for that."

Diack once again dusted off his boots to lead the line as Sauchie hit the league's basement boys for seven at the weekend.

Hat tricks from Connor Langton and Ross Crawford sent the visitors on their way as David Cross sealed the win with a header.

However, the Reds had fallen behind in the game and looked in danger of being the first team to drop points against the Borders outfit this season.

Thankfully, some stern words at half time paid off as Diack's men romped to victory with a better display in the second half.

He said: "In a game where you've missed ten good chances and it is suddenly 3-2, you are suddenly worrying that if one thing goes wrong you could be level.

"But once we got the fourth, the goals just flew in and it was all very pleasing.

"Defensively, we let them in a couple of times and we will work on that this week.

"We stuck to the task and trusted what we are doing and on another day it could have been ten or more."

Mark Finlayson and Darren Cummings both returned to the bench in Saturday's game and Diack believes he is starting to see a real hunger in his side again as they near full strength.

Diack said: "I know we've got a strong squad and the boys are pushing each other on.

"You can see that back at training and the boys are chomping at the bit again."
