Match Preview:

After losing to Dundee United on Saturday in the opening match of their Betfred League Cup Group C campaign, Rovers will be hoping for a better result, when they welcome Dundee to Stark’s Park on Tuesday evening.

This will be Dundee’s first match in the group, after they had a free weekend, with the other group fixture seeing Cowdenbeath defeating Buckie Thistle 4-2.

After initially rejecting the chance to continue to be Dundee’s manager, then experience a change of heart, Neil McCann has had a busy time in the transfer market over the summer, with seven new arrivals at Dens Park.

Central-defender, Jack Hendry has been signed after leaving Wigan, while three central midfielders have been added to the pool, in Glen Kamara, Scott Allan and Lewis Spence, who have joined from Arsenal, Celtic and Dunfermline respectively.

Two left midfielders have also signed up, with Roarie Deacon acquired from Sutton United, while Randy Wolters was picked up after he was released from Go Ahead Deventer.

Up front, Souffien Moussa may make his debut, after signing on Friday from FC Lokomotiv Gorna Oryahovitsa who ply their trade in the Bulgarian second-tier.

The clubs last meeting was also in the League Cup in 2014, when Dundee were comfortable 4-0 winners in a second round tie at Dens Park.

Raith’s last win over Dundee was at the same venue a year earlier, when an own-goal from Gary Irvine gifted Rovers a spot into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

You have to go back even further for Rovers last win over the Dee at Stark’s Park though, 2011 to be precise, when a Gregory Tade effort and a last-minute Allan Walker goal saw Rovers run out 2-1 winners in a First Division fixture.

The aforementioned Scottish Cup game is Raith’s only win from the teams last ten meetings, with six defeats coming in that sequence.

Tuesday evening’s match referee will be Stephen Finnie.
