FALKIRK have landed a home tie with Dundee in the Ramsden’s Challenge Cup.

The Bairns will host the Dark Blues midweek on week commencing August 8. A decision to play the game on Tuesday or Wednesday has yet to be made.

Last season Falkirk drew twice with Dundee, extending an unbeaten home run against the Taysdiders to nine and a half years.

They last lost to Dundee in 2002 in the Scottish Cup, however they were defeated twice at Dens Park.

Steven Pressley will sit the game out as part of his five-match suspension which also saw him in the stand against Brechin on Saturday.

Coincidentally it was an incident at Dens Park during one of the defeats last year that landed him with his five-match touchline ban.

Stenhousemuir and East Stirlingshire were not part of the draw after losing by a single goal in their games at the weekend.

The rest of the draw is:

Hamilton v Partick Thistle

Falkirk v Dundee

East Fife v Elgin

Livingston v Stirling Albion

Annan v Peterhead

Forfar v Greenock Morton

Dumbarton v Berwick Rangers

Ayr v Raith Rovers
