The goalkeeper has been kicking his heels on the bench this season after Allan McGregor was restored to the first team, having previously been dropped following his role in the infamous "Boozegate" affair.

However, Walter Smith has confirmed Alexander could be back between the sticks for the third round clash at Palmerston Park.

Madjid Bougherra returns from suspension but the cup tie comes too soon for Kyle Lafferty, who is still recovering from the ligament injury he sustained while on international duty with Northern Ireland.

Gers (from): Alexander, Whittaker, Papac, Weir, Mendes, Davis, McCulloch, Novo, Thomson, Naismith, Rothen, Fleck, Boyd, Miller, Bougherra, McGregor, Smith, Little, Wilson.
