Hearts' Uche Ikpeazu
Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu insists that they are fully focused on booking a place in the Scottish Cup Final as they look to bounce back from Saturday's derby day defeat.

The striker couldn't hide his frustration after the 2-1 loss to Hibernian in a Scottish Premier League (SPL) match at Tynecastle.

Ikpeazu and his fellow teammates are desperate to return to winning ways against Inverness CT at Hampden this coming Saturday.

“It’s frustrating. I’m a winner, I want to win every game and I hate losing but we can only move on," Uche explained.

“We can only take confidence from the way we played even if we didn’t get the result and go into the semi-final.

“I hate losing any game, so I’m frustrated, because the game had a great atmosphere and it’s just such a disappointment," he added.

"The fans should be angry when we lose, I don’t blame them, we want to win every game.

"My mentality is that I want to win everything, so it’s not a good week for me after the Rangers and Hibs game but we have to go into the semi with confidence. I play every game like it’s my last so it’s so important.

“We’re going to go out there and give a good performance, we want to bounce back," he said.

“We have to do what we have to do next weekend, if we play like we can, we’ll be fine.”
