In Roger Graham's preview of tomorrow's Scottish Cup tie he talks to Jim McInally who speaks of his team digging in and battling for the win. However the most interesting - and relief inducing - part is to be found towards the end of the article.

It concerns the signing of Barry Smith and him requiring international clearance. McInally says he will be disappointed if it doesn't come through in time for Saturday. Next comes the immortal line we've all been waiting for: "If cleared to play, Smith will fill one of the central defensive positions."

The manager has finally reached the conclusion almost everyone else had ages ago - our central defenders are not good enough.

It will be interesting to see who Smith will replace. Ryan Harding was appalling last week and Stewart Greacen (pictured) has been costing goals for ages but will the manager drop his Captain? We'll have to wait and see. Personally, I'd bring Smith in for Greacen.
