 Match Preview: 

After disposing of Premiership side, Hamilton Academical in the League Cup on Tuesday evening, Raith Rovers travel to Easter Road this weekend, to take on Allan Stubbs’ Hibernian.

After two defeats from three league matches, Stubbs moved to strengthen his squad during the week, snapping up last season’s Rangers player of the year, Darren McGregor, who made his debut in Wednesday night’s 1-0 League Cup win over Stranraer, a win that was sealed through an own-goal from Scott Rumsby.

McGregor won’t be the only potential new face in Hibs line-up on Saturday, with  Stubbs bringing in nine additions to the squad over the summer. Goalkeeper, Antonio Reguero joined from Ross County, while midfielder Marvin Bartley headed to Edinburgh after leaving Leyton Orient.

He could be joined in the middle of the park by a number of other new acquisitions, such as Liam Henderson from joined on loan from Celtic, Dylan McGeough, John McGinn and Danny Carmichael. Up front, James Keatings made the short journey from Tynecastle to sign a deal, while Martin Boyle has been brought in from Dundee.

Easter Road has been something of a happy-hunting ground in recent seasons for Raith Rovers. Last year, they defeated the home side 3-2 in a fifth round Scottish Cup tie, and they also triumphed over Rangers in the final of the Ramsdens Cup at the Leith venue.

Last season, the two Championship encounters there finished as 1-1 draws, with Raith equalising through Christian Nade on both occasions.

The clubs have met 10 times since the 1998/99 season, and Hibs have come out on top on six occasions, with Raith winning twice.

Saturday’s match referee will be Alan Muir.
