Hearts after cup double says Grainger

Heart of Midlothian are looking to add the Scottish Communities League Cup to last season’s Scottish Cup triumph.

The Jambos beat Livingston 3-1 at Tynecastle on Tuesday night to move into the quarter-finals and defender Danny Grainger is now targeting a second Hampden cup in two seasons for the Edinburgh outfit.

“We have got our own expectations of what we would like to do in this competition this year,” he said.

“We were at Hampden last year for a great occasion and no one wants to go back there more than the boys in that dressing room.

“What happened with the Scottish Cup last season (5-1 win over rivals Hibernian) is a massive motivation for us.

“If you have not played at Hampden before, like some of the boys in our squad, you want to play there.

“And if you have been there recently like many of us have, you want to get back there as quickly as you can.”
