GARY BOLLAN insists his side are capable of dumping Dundee after the Lions were paired with the First Division leaders in the Scottish Cup fourth round draw.
Livi will meet the Dark Blues is assuming they can negotiate safe passage past Second Division strugglers Clyde in their third round clash which hit the skids twice this week.
Livi were leading 1-0 thanks to an Andy Halliday goal last Saturday when the referee abandoned the match.
And the rearranged match, scheduled for Tuesday night, didn’t get started either with the Broadwood turf frozen over.
So they will now meet next Monday night for the right to face Jocky Scott’s table-toppers in a match Bollan is confident his side could cause an upset in with home advantage.
He said: “We’ve been handed a home draw if we get through in the Cup, so we’ve got to be happy with that and I don’t think Dundee will relish coming down to our place.
“The draw could have been kinder to us but it is a winnable one, although it will be tough.
“Dundee are doing really well at the moment and Jocky Scott has them playing well and he has also spent money wisely. They have some very good players and we are aware of that.
“We are all disappointed the game was called off again on Tuesday as we were all looking forward to it but it wasn’t a wasted day as we got the boys in for a training session and then Scott (Paterson) and I headed up to Montrose to watch their match against Berwick.”
Bollan also revealed Italian striker Raffaele De Vita should be back in contention for the weekend’s league clash with Stranraer meaning he has a full squad of players to choose from.
In other news, the club have confirmed stopper Danny Griffin has penned a short-term contract extension which will keep him at Almondvale until the end of the season, at least.
