Andy Webster believes Dundee United can go all the way to the final of the Co-operative Insurance Cup as they prepare to face St Johnstone in the quarter-finals.
The Terrors face a tricky trip to McDiarmid Park next Tuesday with a place in the semi-finals at stake and on-loan Webster is expecting a difficult encounter.
United recently claimed a 3-2 win at St Johnstone in the SPL and Webster sees no reason why the Tannadice outfit cannot make it all the way to the final.
Webster missed out on Hearts' Scottish FA Cup win over Gretna in 2006 despite playing his part in reaching the final and is desperate to play at Hampden Park this time around.
"I'd like to think that we can go all the way in the competition, but St Johnstone are a very good side and we know that first-hand after playing them in the SPL recently," he said.
"They made life very difficult for us and I'm sure they will again when we meet in the next round of the cup, so we will be under no illusions going into it.
"The club got to the final of the competition a couple of years ago, when they faced Rangers, so hopefully we can emulate that and get a chance of winning some silverware this season.
"The squad here is definitely good enough to reach a cup final and it is just a case of making sure that we all perform on the day.
"The cup run I was part of at Hearts was a great experience, but to miss out on the final was frustrating.
"To make it to that stage again, in either of the cup competitions, would be a great achievement and we will be doing our best to go all the way."
