Tight Game Expected At Bayview
Updated Tuesday, 10th August 2010
Alba Cup fever takes hold of Bayview tonight.
Tonight Stenhousemuir welcome some faces who will be familiar to striker Simon Lynch. The former Dundee man is hoping to be fit for the visit of his old club. Lynch has not been able to turn out for John Coughlin's side this season following his move from East Stirling but has still has an outside chance to make it tonight. Coughlin said: "I will make a couple of changes to the line up after the Peterhead game but our aim will be to try and play open attractive football against them and see where that takes us. We had hoped that Simon would have been involved against Peterhead at some stage on Saturday but he never made it. My fingers are crossed that he can be included in this game."
New Dundee manager Gordon Chisholm could take along on-loan St Johnstone midfielder Jamie Adams as he is back from suspension. Another couple able to play in the Alba Cup are Netan Sansara and Nicky Reilly. They are not able to play in the league but Chisholm can use them tonight. The only absentee for the visitors is injured defender Dominic Shimmin. Chisholm said: "This will be an extremely competitive game. I watched Stenhousemuir last season in the Scottish Cup against Dunfermline and they took that to extra time by battling for everything. I had them watched on Saturday and the report I got back has told me that they remain a highly competitive side."
