Match Preview:

Raith Rovers made it 12 games unbeaten at the weekend, after a fine win over League One Falkirk in the Scottish Cup Third Round.

Despite Reghan Tumilty’s early dismissal, goals from Ross Matthews and Ethan Ross saw off the Bairns at the Falkirk Stadium, to earn Rovers a place in the last 32.

However, if ever a tie was going to test Rovers on an unbeaten stretch, it was always going to be a game against a side which has been the definition of a bogey team.

It’s been 21 years and 25 attempts since Rovers defeated Inverness Caledonian Thistle, their opponents in Tuesday evening’s SPFL Trust Trophy quarter final.

The two teams are currently the joint holders of this competition, after the tournament was curtailed after they both reached the 2020 final, while the tournament was mothballed last year, and for the winners of this tie, a clash with either Kilmarnock or Hamilton await in the semi-final.

The two have met twice already this season, with Kilmarnock coming out on top in the first encounter in August, when a late goal from Roddy MacGregor ensured all three points stayed in the Highlands.

It was even closer at Stark’s Park in October though, despite Rovers being reduced to 10 men in the first half, after Ross Matthews dismissal just before the interval.

Aidan Connolly put the 10 men ahead with half an hour remaining, but Sean Welsh’s leveller meant the teams shared the points on the day.

Inverness’ record in this fixture doesn’t make pretty reading for those of a Raith persuasion, with 7 wins and three draws from the last 10 meetings.

The referee for Tuesday night’s game is Barry Cook.
