MIKAEL LUSTIG is backing stand-in shotstopper Logan Bailly for a Scottish Cup shut-out against Stranraer tomorrow afternoon.

The Belgian will face the League Two side at Stair Park as he takes over from the suspended Craig Gordon, sent off in last season’s controversial semi-final against Inverness Caley Thistle.

Bailly, 30, has made only one first team appearance since his summer move from OH Leuven when he played in the 3-1 win over Dundee United at Tannadice in August.

Lustig said: “Logan did very well against United and we can see every day in training that he is a class goalkeeper.

“So, it shouldn’t be a problem in this game.

”I haven’t played in front of him in before as I missed the Tannadice game, but he has been here for awhile now and has settled in well.”

On the Cup-tie, the Swedish defender admitted: “I don’t know anything about Stranraer.

“They had a good result last week, but I haven’t played at Stair Park before.

“However, we must always remember it is 11 v 11 and it will be tough.

“We are aiming for the treble – as we do every year at this club – so we know we cannot make a mistake.”
