Ross County Irn Bru Cup

IRN-BRU Cup final - Key Players

We look at some of the players who could have a big impact on Saturday's IRN-BRU Cup final between Connah's Quay Nomads and Ross County in Inverness...

George Horan (Connah’s Quay Nomads)
Horan is not only a club legend at Connah’s Quay, having been with the club for over 10 seasons, but also a legend of Welsh football. He recently made his 400th appearance in the Welsh Premier League and last weekend against Newtown maintained his record of scoring in every campaign he has played in since debuting for The Nomads in 2000. Horan has scored vital goals in The Nomads’ IRN-BRU Cup run, heading home against Coleraine before scoring a crucial equaliser against Queen’s Park at Hampden Park.

Jamie Lindsay (Ross County)
The midfielder is an integral part of the Ross County team and has made 39 appearances across all competitions this season. The 23-year-old was previously on loan from Celtic before signing a permanent deal in Dingwall in the summer. Lindsay has scored seven times in 2018/19 - Ross County have won six of those matches and the other was a 2-2 draw in Inverness.

Callum Morris (Connah’s Quay Nomads)
Morris has had his best-ever goalscoring campaign for The Nomads, having found the net on 15 occasions from midfield including hat-tricks against Caernarfon Town and Llandudno in the JD Welsh Premier League.  Morris has been with The Nomads since 2015 and was a key part of The Nomads' first venture into European football, playing all four games in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League campaign, and etched his name into club history by scoring The Nomads' first European goal with his strike against Stabaek in July 2016.

Josh Mullin (Ross County)
Having helped Livingston win promotion to the Premiership last season, Mullin is on course to do the same with Ross County this time round. The former Albion Rovers winger has proved a shrewd signing for the Staggies, weighing in with 10 goals – the most recent of which came against Morton earlier this month – and chipping in with a number of assists.

Michael Wilde (Connah’s Quay Nomads)
Wilde is The Nomads’ top scorer this season with 17 goals in all competitions and has netted in three of the four rounds of the IRN-BRU Cup, with winning goals against Falkirk and Queen’s Park as well as an important equaliser against Edinburgh City in the semi-final.

Ross Stewart (Ross County, pictured)
With top scorer Billy Mckay out injured for the rest of the campaign, County co-bosses Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson will hope Stewart can help fire the Staggies to victory in the Highland capital this weekend. The former St Mirren striker has already scored three IRN-BRU Cup goals this season and was voted Golden Balls Player of the Round in the semi-finals.
