Match Report

Former Dee Jim Hamilton hit a double to put holders Livingston through to the next round after extra time of the CIS Insurance Cup tie at Almondvale. He equalised from the penalty spot in the 90th minute and struck with a header from the edge of the box in the 111th minute. The penalty was given for a foul by Brent Sancho on Hamilton, with the Trinidad and Tobago defender being booked for protesting about

the award. Steven Robb put Dundee a goal up midway through the second half and that looked as though it would be enough to take the Dark Blues through until Livi got that late life-saver.

Mark Fotheringham returned to the starting eleven as Dundee for the quick-fire return with Livi.

The midfielder replaced Garry Brady who dropped to the bench. Steven Robb was again at left back in the absence of Jonay Hernandez who missed his second match with a kidney complaint.

Saturday's league encounter had been a pretty drab affair and this one shaped up similarly.

The first shot on goal in the game did not arrive until the 15th minute, but Livi midfielder Craig Easton's left-footed effort from 20 yards was easily saved by Derek Soutar.

A minute later, Dundee broke to the other end and striker John Sutton hit a right-footed shot from the edge of the box that McKenzie held well.

The game refused to ignite after the break either and lain Anderson's powder puff effort from 18-yards was easily saved by McKenzie, and typified the paucity of skill on show.

Fortunately, the tedium was lifted when Dundee took the lead with a goal from an unlikely source. Left-back Robb sprinted 60- yards to the edge of the Livingston box. beat Oscar Rubio and then drilled a low shot past McKenzie and in-off the far upright.

Steven almost scored a second in the 75th minute, but this time his left-footed drive from 16 yards hit the outside of the post. Livi responded and, moments later, Hamilton drove a great ball across the Dundee six yard box with only a touch needed. but found no takers.

Deep into injury time, the home side were given a lifeline when Brent Sancho bundled Jim Hamilton to the ground inside the penalty area.

The Livi substitute picked himself up to coolly slot home the penalty and take the tie into extra-time.

The first period of extra-time produced little of note, but five minutes into the second period, Livingston took the lead.

O'Brien flighted over a cross in from the left which Jim Hamilton rose to meet and bulleted in a header from 10 yards.

In the 115th minute, McKenzie superbly tipped over a powerful Bobby Mann header as Dundee pushed hard for the equaliser.

But the holders held on to advance into the quarter-finals.
