Sone Aluko says Rangers have shown that they have enough quality in their squad to cope with whatever is thrown at them.
The Scottish champions picked up back-to-back wins with a 3-0 league victory over Motherwell last Monday and then cruising past Arbroath 4-0 in the Scottish Cup on Sunday despite a host of injury and suspension problems.
Rangers were without suspended trio Steven Davis, Lee McCulloch and Steven Whittaker for the trip to Gayfield.
Kyle Lafferty is out for seven weeks with a hamstring tear and Kirk Broadfoot is sidelined.
But players like David Healy, John Fleck and Salim Kerkar have emerged to fill the void left in recent weeks and have convinced Aluko that Rangers can cope with anything.
He told the club's official website: "That's two decent results and performances in a row. We did well against Motherwell last Monday and we were facing a potential banana skin [against Arbroath] but I felt we handled it well.
"Hopefully we can maintain our momentum. We have a few injuries at the moment but the boys who have come in have done very well.
"I thought John Fleck did well and Salim came off the bench and scored so it shows that we have decent players to come in. I'm confident with the team we've got and when the injured lads come back we will be even stronger."
