Rangers are favourites for the upcoming Scottish Cup replay against Kilmarnock, Steve Clarke concedes.
The Gers held Killie to a 0-0 draw at Rugby Park at the weekend to take the tie back to Ibrox.
Rangers will be optimistic of a home win, but Kilmarnock hope that Eamonn Brophy could return to make the difference.
Brophy has scored 10 goals and provided two assists this season, netting in the win over Rangers in January.
He has since been out with a knee injury and faces a race against time to be fit for the replay with Rangers.
Steve Clarke told Kilmarnock's official website: "We’re feeling good, we’ve already been to Ibrox this season. In my time at the club when we’ve went there, we’ve always been competitive.
"Rangers will be slight favourites now but we’re still in it. We’re hopeful that Eamonn Brophy could come back, Stuart Findlay as well."
It was Brophy who took advantage of Joe Worrall's gaffe in the recent league meeting between the two teams.
Rangers host Kilmarnock in the cup on next week on February 20.
Brophy was projected by transfermarkt to be out of action until mid-March.
