Neil Parry is dreaming of a Betfred Cup semi-final and stunning old boss Jack Ross at Hibs with Alloa.

The East Kilbride goalkeeper helped the Wasps to the quarter-finals of the competition with a 1-0 win over Hearts last weekend.

After drawing another Edinburgh giant, the 35-year-old is targeting a huge shock with the part-time side.

“Jack Ross signed me for Alloa and he is a really top manager,” he told Lanarkshire Live Sport.

“I’m not surprised to see how well he has done in the game, and how well he is doing at Hibs. He was excellent in the short time he him at Alloa.

“I was hoping for a home tie and I think that suits us.

“They will be huge favourites and you never know what can happen in a one off game.

“I’m looking forward to it and we will see what happens when we get there.

“It’s an exciting time for everyone at the club and it’s good to be on a cup run for the club financially.

“It would be unbelievable to get to the semi-finals. We want to enjoy it but not let it become a distraction from the league.”

Having lost 3-0 to the Jambos in the league days before the last 16 upset, Parry now hopes Peter Grant’s side can carry their good form into the Championship season.

“It was an excellent performance from us,” Parry continued.

“We changed our approach a bit from the game on Tuesday in the league. We had tried to go toe-to-toe with them and that is probably not the wisest thing to do with a team of that quality.

“We made ourselves a bit harder to beat. We got forward at times but we were maybe a bit more selective about it.

“The boys defended really well and I had a good double save at the start of the game, but apart from that it was quiet, which isn’t what you’re expecting from a team like Hearts.

“We dug in really well and we managed to get the penalty and get the win.

“Now we need to try and take some of that form into the rest of the season.

“We kept a really good shape and limited their opportunities.

“I was probably expecting to be busier but I’m always happy to be quiet!”

He added: “We take the positives and park this to the side and try to get our first win in the league.”
