Liam Fontaine's Dundee side begin their Scottish Cup campaign tonight with a home game against Bonnyrigg Rose. Fontaine was a member of the Hibernian side which won the Scottish Cup in 2016, and he thinks that his current team can go on cup run. "We're capable of it. Whether we do it or not it is down to us when we go on the pitch every cup round. Obviously it starts this Saturday with Bonnyrigg" he said.
No change in approach from team Even though Dundee are playing against a Lowland League team, Fontaine wants his side to approach the game in a similar mindset to how they played in their league games recently. "We need to go out and play our game the way we are doing at the moment. Which is everyone feeling confident and showing a real belief and desire to make this club do well, which it deserves" The player went to recall his memories of lifting the Scottish Cup as Hibernian player in 2016, after they beat Rangers in the final. David Gray's injury-time header secured a famous 3-2 victory. "Great memories" "Great memories.
To win the cup for Hibs obviously after so long, to do it with a club like Hibs and break that hoodoo was great. On the day, to win it how we did it with a last-minute header as well, and the scenes after it was amazing. "When you hang up your boots you do want to have something to look back on, some success and fortunately I'm able to do that. Who said it can't happen again" Fontaine said.

Dundee are favourites to see off Lowland League outfit Bonnyrigg Rose at Dens Park tonight in the Scottish Cup. That's the story the bookies' odds tell you – the Dark Blues are around 1/8 while the Rosey Posey are a 14/1 shot. But the visitors have a history of upsetting the odds in this competition and things might not be so straightforward for James McPake's side. They have made it beyond this stage of the competition more than once, beating Championship opposition along the way and have a former Deefiant man (Jonny Stewart) in their ranks. They also boast an ex-player that dwarfs the sort of fame any former Dee could claim (even the great Claudio Caniggia)…Sir Sean Connery. What TV channel is Dundee vs Bonnyrigg Rose on?
