In-form Paul McMullan is feeling confident and believes that the potent attacking players of United can cause St Mirren problems in the play-off finals.
McMullan has hit form at just the right time with the club seeking promotion to the Scottish Premiership via the play-offs. The tricky winger scored in the first leg and set up Osman Sow’s first goal for the club in the second leg. With the two biggest games of the season in front of them, McMullan is in a positive frame of mind.
“It’s brilliant,” he said.
“It is one we are all looking forward to and we are hoping we can deliver the right result for the club.”
His upturn in form has earned him plenty of plaudits from supporters and pundits alike and McMullan says he is feeling the confidence flowing.
“It is probably the perfect time to be getting a good run of form going,” he said.
“I feel confident, I feel good about my own game and it is obviously something I want to keep going over these next two games.”
United dispatched Inverness by four goals to nil across the two play-off legs with four different attacking players scoring. That kind of attacking potency will give head coach Robbie Neilson the kind of selection headaches every coach wants, and for McMullan it underlines how much United could trouble their play-off final rivals.
“It’s brilliant when you know you probably only need a couple of us to have a good game and you’re going to cause teams problems,” he said.
“Hopefully on the Thursday night four or five of us can have a good game and it should cause them a lot of problems.”
Meanwhile, St Mirren captain Paul McGinn, speaking to BBC Scotland, has said that he is comfortable with his team being labelled underdogs for the play-off finals. However, McMullan has no interest in who is favourites or underdogs.
“It doesn’t bother us whether they want to be underdogs or favourites,” he said.
“It doesn’t make any odds, it is going to be two teams on the pitch and the best team is going to win.”
