Wes Foderingham looked forward to the visit of Hibernian on Sunday believing that Rangers have more six-goal wins in their locker.

A new era at the Ibrox club under Mark Warburton began with a 6-2 thrashing of their Ladbrokes Championship rivals at Easter Road in the Petrofac Training Cup.

The Gers have won their subsequent four games with some comfort, including a 5-1 league win at Alloa.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper, who signed a three-year contract with the Govan club in the summer after being released by Swindon, is confident there will be more high-scoring wins this season similar to the one in Leith.

He said: “I don’t think it was a one-off, we put in a very solid performance and came out on top on the day.

“We probably could have scored even more goals.

“I don’t think we started too well in that game and I don’t think that’ll be the same on Sunday. We’ll look to start sharp and continue on with our attacking prowess.

“We’re just concentrating on ourselves and know what we have to do to perform well.”

Ibrox is close to a sell-out for the visit of Alan Stubbs’ side who are likely to be Rangers’ biggest challengers for promotion this season.

However, Foderingham played down the significance of the encounter.

He said: “It’s probably the biggest game of the season so far. But I don’t think it will be season-defining if I’m honest.

“It would be good for us to get the win but it’s a long season so we need to maintain our form throughout the whole season.

“And if we can go out on Sunday and put in a good performance to get the win then we are on our way.

“We’ve started really well, five games and five wins, and we want to carry that on this Sunday.

“Preparation has been very good so we are looking forward to it.

“Whatever the game, whoever the opposition are, we go out with the same enthusiasm, the same ideas and the same work rate.

“We’ve been praised for that already and I’m sure it’ll be the same on Sunday and hopefully we can get a good result.”
