Raith Rovers will put league business to the side this weekend, when they travel to Livingston to play the Premiership side in the third round of the Scottish Cup.
Rovers go into the game on the back of one of their best performances in years, after a 5-1 win over local rivals Dunfermline in midweek.
A goal from Regan Hendry and braces from Lewis Vaughan and Jamie Gullan handed Raith their biggest victory over the Pars since 1983, and the win kept Rovers in second place in the table, with just five games remaining.
Their opponents on Saturday have enjoyed another fantastic season, reaching the League Cup final as well as securing top six football once again.
It’ll be the second time they’ve met each other in this competition in two seasons, with Livi coming out on top by three goals to one.
It hadn’t looked like that would be the case going into the final stages however.
Raith led by a goal to nil with just 13 minutes remaining thanks to a goal from John Baird, but two goals in as many minutes, from Lyndon Dykes and Steve Lawless turned the game on its head, and a goal in the final few seconds from Lawless sealed the win for the home team.
It’s just under five years since Rovers last win over Livi, when an Aidan Connolly goal was enough to seal a 1-0 win in the Championship.
The head to head record couldn’t be more even in recent times, with five wins apiece from the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be Bobby Madden
