St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright

"Overall we deserved our victory. Two very good goals put us in total command. We're hopeful that on any given day we can beat anybody. The cup's all about on the day and getting a wee bit of good fortune. We'll look forward to the draw and see who we get in the next round."

BBC Sport at Fir Park

"Dundee United are all over Motherwell now, with goalkeeper Dan Twardzik keeping the hosts in the game. A year ago tomorrow, the Fir Park side went out at this stage against Albion Rovers; if they don't get a grip on this game soon, they might make a similarly early exit this year."
