Match Preview:

Raith Rovers begin their Irn Bru Cup campaign this Tuesday evening, with a home match against Highland League opponents,  Brora Rangers.

Ross Tokeley’s men have been in good form so far this season, with three wins and one defeat from their four league games to date, scoring 9 times in the process and conceding just once.

That sequence sees them currently sitting fourth in the Highland League table, three points behind Cove Rangers who are the only side to boast a 100% record.

They’ll be looking to go one better than last season, which saw them finish just one point behind champions Buckie Thistle, a team which Raith defeated in the League Cup last month.

Rovers will be hoping to go considerably further in this competition than they managed last term, when they fell at the first hurdle against Forfar at Station Park by three goals to two.

Brora reached the second round of last year’s competition, defeating the Ross County under-20 side 3-2 in the opening round, before going down by the same scoreline to League One Peterhead.

Tuesday evening’s match referee will be Steven Reid.
