Match Preview:

Raith Rovers have an opportunity to reach their fifth cup final on Friday evening when they travel to Firhill to play Partick Thistle in the semi-finals of the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Cup.

The Maryhill side currently sit bottom of the Championship, two points behind ninth placed Alloa Athletic.

Ian McCall’s side reached the last four with wins over Montrose, Connah’s Quay Nomads and Stenhousemuir, and will be looking to reach their first final since 2013, when they lost on penalties to Queen of the South in the final of the Ramsdens Cup.

The two sides haven’t met since 2013, when they drew 0-0 in a SFL First Division match, and they last met in a cup competition at the quarter final stage of this competition in September 2012, when the Jags won by three goals to nil.

The two teams can’t be separated across their last 10 meetings, with three wins and four draws apiece.

Friday night’s match referee will be Alan Newlands.
