Rovers booked their Scottish Cup quarter-final date with a 3-2 victory at Hibernian last month and Murray believes the positives they have taken from that day will spur them on against their latest Premiership rivals.
"First and foremost we are delighted to be here," he told Sky Sports News. "We knew we had a difficult task at Hibs in the last round but if you have a wee bit of belief you never know what can happen in cup ties.
"Saturday will be a fantastic occasion for the players and everyone in the club can look forward to it. We know we will be facing a very good side who play very good football and pose threats from all over the pitch.
"But I think we have to have a bit of belief about us. It's the Scottish Cup, an early kick-off, it will be beamed live all over the country and if we give it our all you never know what can happen on the day.
"Our cup form is special. We are in the Ramsdens Cup Final against Rangers and had a great win against Dundee before beating Hibs.
"No one gave us a chance but we go into these games with the belief that we can always go that one step further."
