Airdrie have conceded 11 goals to the SPFL League 1 leaders already this season and Bollan will isolate their latest meeting from the wider challenge facing his side.
That is simply to stay up, since the club are bottom of the table and five points adrift of safety. Airdrie will have been heartened by a 2-1 win over second-bottom side Arbroath on Saturday and Bollan is keen that feeling is not punctured by the potential of a heavy defeat at the Excelsior Stadium later today.
"You cannot put into words how important Saturday's win was," said the Airdrie manager, who has Keigan Parker available after the striker signed a contract following a trial spell. "Cutting the gap to two points at the bottom is great and our players have taken confidence from it. Hopefully, it is a turning point in our season.
"Everybody can beat everybody in this league, outside of Rangers. Rangers are a quality side and are top of the table for a reason. We will go out and try for the win and if it is good enough to get something then great, and if not then we will move on quickly."
