Jackie McNamara has his sights set on the Scottish Cup after Dundee United progressed to the semi-finals on the weekend.

The Tangerines beat Inverness 5-0 to move into the final four where they will meet Rangers or Albion Rovers who contest their quarter-final replay on March 18 following the 1-1 draw on Sunday.

McNamara is determined to see his side get through to the final after last season’s semi-final loss to eventual winners Celtic before winning the decider as they chase their third Scottish Cup which they last won in 2010.

"We got to the semi-final last year against Celtic and we ran them close," said the Arabs boss.

"So it would be good to get to the final this year and there is no reason why we can't go on and win it.

"That's five games we have won on the bounce. That breeds confidence in the players and we are scoring goals as well."

Nadir Ciftci scored a brace and Gavin Gunning, Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong were all on target while Inverness had Greg Tansey and Marley Watkins sent off in the 44th and 72nd minutes respectively.
