Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be in action at Stark’s Park for the first time since November this weekend, when they welcome Hibernian for a Scottish Cup fourth round tie.

It’ll be the second consecutive weekend that the two teams have faced each other, after the Leith side won 1-0 last Saturday, thanks to a Jason Cummings goal at the start of the second period. The win kept Hibs just three points behind league leaders Rangers, and meant that Alan Stubbs men have now just lost once in their last 16 league fixtures. Despite the defeat, Ray McKinnon’s side remain inside the play-off spots, two points ahead of Queen of the South, and having played a game less.

This will be the fourth time that Rovers have faced Hibs this season, and so far, they’ve lost on each occasion. In August, James Keatings and Jason Cummings were on target as Hibs won by two goals to nil, while in October, a rousing second half showing from Rovers wasn’t enough, as they lost their 100% home record, losing 2-1, after Jon Daly replied to first-half strikes from John McGinn and Cummings again.

Despite Rovers record against the capital club this term, Rovers can take some solace from an impressive Scottish Cup record against Hibs. Since 1896, the two teams have met in this competition on 14 occasions, and to date, Rovers have lost only three times. The last time the two were paired together was in 2014, with Grant Anderson memorably grabbing a winner in a five-goal-thriller. Before that, the previous meeting was in 1998, with Raith again putting themselves into the next round, after a 2-1 win at Easter Road, thanks to two goals from John Millar.

Saturday’s match referee will be Willie Collum.
