Dundee take on Kilmarnock in the Forth Round of the William Hill Scottish Cup at Dens tommorow. The game will be live on BBC One Scotland with a 12.30pm kick off. Dundee are boosted with the news that Gavin Rae has signed a new contract albeit it a short term deal and also unfortunately for Kilmarnock, Gary Harkins will not be facing his former club as he has a broken ankle. We wish him the best in his recovery.
Meanwhile Dundee welcome back Stephen O'Donnell from his suspension but a doubt is Nicky Riley who has picked up a knock in the Raith game on Monday and so will be given a late fitness test along with Rhys Weston.

Kilmarnock have Harkins out injured as is Ryan O'Leary and Danny Buijs while the Rugby Park side welcome back Rory McKeown and James Dayton from injury.

Speaking ahead of the game, Dundee gaffer Barry Smith was in a confident mood ahead of the challenge Dundee face.
 "Last season in the Scottish Cup we lost an early goal against Motherwell and went out 4-0 and this season we lost a fairly early goal to Aberdeen and lost out in the League Cup.
"We need to keep ourselves in the game for as long as possible this time to give ourselves a chance of doing anything

Here's hoping the boys in Dark Blue will do the job tommorow and here's hoping it will be a classic Scottish Cup match.

Raith Rovers 0-1 Dundee.

1596 Dark Blue fans travelled to Starks Park today hoping that last week's defeat at home to Morton was only a blip and by 16.45, they left Starks Park with a spring in their step as Dundee managed to bag three points and keep the pressure on Falkirk and Ross County. Jake Hyde was the Dundee hero as he popped up in the 35th minute to prod the ball home. More to follow...
