Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes today insisted he has built a Dons squad strong enough to deliver cup glory this season.
McInnes has already led the Reds to League Cup success in 2014 to end a 19-year wait for silverware.
McInnes is determined that one trophy success will not be his only Aberdeen legacy.
The Dons are set to face St Johnstone in the League Cup quarter-final at Pittodrie tonight.
And McInnes today challenged his Reds to take another step towards Hampden and bring more silverware to the Granite City.
He said: “I think we are good enough to win a trophy.
“There is a strong, motivated group of players at this club and we can look forward to getting ourselves in the mix for winning trophies.”
In his first full season at Pittodrie McInnes led the Dons to the League Cup in front of 40,000 Dons fans at Parkhead in March 2014.
That memorable final only made him hungrier to bring more trophies back to the Granite City.
He said: “The players, staff and myself want to define our time here by winning more than one trophy.
“I have every confidence that we are capable of bringing success here.
“There is no point being at this club unless you are here to be successful.”
The game will be played to a finish tonight, with penalties if necessary.
McInnes wants to make home advantage count in front of a large support.
“We have been strong at home over the last few seasons, our record shows that,” he said.
“We want that to continue tonight.
“Certain games can be defining and bigger than others, because in the cup you are either in or out.
“There is no looking back on it if you don’t bring the performance.
“We want to give ourselves a chance to be in the semi final draw.”
McInnes was in the crowd at McDiarmid Park on Saturday to watch Saints defeat Hearts 1-0.
Having drawn 0-0 in Perth in the Premiership opener he has his squad on red alert on St Johnstone’s threat.
He said: “It is important that fans recognise and respect the toughness of our opponent.
“While we are at home we are always confident and back ourselves to win.
“But some games are more difficult than others, and this is certainly one of those.”
