Motherwell striker Ross McCormack is trying hard to focus on football as the club prepare for their first match since the sudden death of captain Phil O´Donnell.

Two weeks after the 35-year-old collapsed with heart failure during a victory over Dundee United, O´Donnell´s Motherwell team-mates are thrown back in at the deep end with a Scottish Cup tie at Hearts.

McCormack said: "Obviously what´s happened has been a massive shock to everyone at the club. But for Saturday, we must try and prepare like we have for every other game this season. I am absolutely sure that´s what Phil would have wanted us to do."
