Experienced Cardiff striker Kenny Miller believes 'anything can happen' as he prepares for the Carling Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday.
The former Rangers and Celtic man was the hero of the 2010 Scottish League Cup Final, heading the winner six minutes from time in a 1-0 triumph for nine-man Rangers over St Mirren.
Miller, who has also won two Scottish Cups, is not used to being the underdog in a final situation, but insists the Welsh club have enough experience to cope with the occasion.
"At those clubs we were always expected to win those finals so it was a different sort of pressure," he told the Daily Star.
"But my best memory is probably from a game where we were up against it - scoring the winner in the last few minutes in the 2010 CIS Cup Final against St Mirren.
"We were down to nine men and to be honest on that day St Mirren were far and away the better team anyway.
"You think you are up against it and then we got a breakaway in the 84th minute and I popped up with a header. It's a good memory.
"It just tells you that anything can happen on a given day in a final. We've not really talked about it too much because we've been busy with the Championship programme.
"But when it comes there are plenty of people in our dressing room who can hand out advice."
