After 5 months on the sidelines, Ross McCormack wants to make up for lost time.
McCormack was pleased to get a run-out eight days before the Lanarkshire side's home clash with St Johnstone in the Tennent's Scottish Cup quarter-finals. He said: "I'm a little bit tired. I got a bit of cramp towards the end. I played about 85 minutes, which is about 25 more than I expected, but it went well. Obviously, I'm looking to keep my place but I'm not going to be too disappointed. I'm glad to be back. But to play in a quarter-final would be special." Well boss Maurice Malpas was eager to give McCormack a game with the cup tie and the run-in to the SPL split coming up. Malpas said: "We just felt he needed to get a game. We have got a lot of games coming up and we needed to bring his fitness on. I was reasonably pleased with Ross. It's a case of how he reacts, and we'll check his fitness in training after a few days off."
