Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will put league action to one side for two weeks, starting this Friday night, with a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup quarter-final clash with Elgin City.

It’ll be just the third time the two sides have met, with the first fixture coming in 2005, while the last came 10 years later in 2015.

That first meeting came in the first round of this very competition, with goals from Scott Crabbe, Paul McManus and a Stuart Cumming own goal eventually sealing a 3-1 win for Raith after extra-time.

The second and most recent game also saw Rovers come out on top, in a Scottish Cup 3rd round tie at Borough Briggs, where Ryan McCord and Grant Anderson handed Rovers a two goal initiative, before a Jordan Halsman goal gave Elgin a late consolation.

Elgin reached this stage of the competition by defeating Hibs under-21 team in the first round 4-3, and it was an even bigger scoreline in the next round, when they knocked out Brechin City by the odd goal in nine.

Their next two ties saw them knock out higher division sides, with Dundee being dispatched 2-1 at Dens Park, while League One Airdrie were knocked out 2-0 in the Penny Cars Stadium in the last 16.

Raith reached this stage with wins over Ross County’s development squad, Falkirk and Glenavon.

Friday evening’s match referee will be Euan Anderson.
