St Mirren boss Danny Lennon insists lightning can strike twice as his side look to shock Celtic for a second cup competition running.

Saints reached their second Scottish Communities League Cup final in four years by beating Celtic in the semi-finals last month.

In doing so, they overturned a run of eight successive defeats against the Hoops in which Saints had been outscored by an aggregate 22-0.

They now face the Glasgow giants once more on Saturday hoping to cause a second upset by knocking the Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders out of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

And Lennon is hopeful of his team's quarter-final prospects.

He said: "Our performances in my time here against Celtic before that semi-final were not great, not scoring a goal, never mind winning a game.

"So we know we need to be at our best.

"A lot of people have written us off already. A lot of people have asked if lightning can strike twice. My answer is why not?"
