Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be hoping for a return to home comforts this weekend when they meet Falkirk in the second round of the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Cup on Saturday.

Both teams go into the match on the back of mixed results, with just one win apiece from their last three outings, albeit they still sit top and third in League One respectively.

Falkirk drew 0-0 in a closely contested game with Airdrie last time out, while Rovers came out second best in the Fife derby, losing by four goals to two despite taking an early lead.

It’ll be the first time the two sides have met since 2017, and the first time they’ve been matched together in a cup competition since 2013, when they came head-to-head in the quarter-finals of the same competition.

Rovers won 1-0 thanks to a solitary strike from Greig Spence, and they’d go on to lift the trophy with a win over Rangers in the final at Easter Road.

Saturday’s match referee will be Greg Aitken.

Match Odds:

Raith Rovers: 9/5 | Falkirk: 7/5 | Draw: 12/5

Rovers take on Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the First Round of the Scottish Cup and earn a 1-1 draw in front of 10719 fans. Rovers scorer is Tom Mackle. Mackle had earlier hit the bar and Davie Sneddon met a similar fate with hi penalty. The Dons win the replay 0-1 back at Stark's Park two days later in near gale force conditions. The only goal of the game came in bizarre fashion. Bobby Reid?s clearance got caught in the strong wind and blew back into his own net.
