Match preview

If there is to be an upset on Scottish Cup fifth round weekend, is it most likely to come in Kirkcaldy?

Raith Rovers have never won this trophy, losing in the final 110 years ago, but were League Cup winners in 1995.

Right now, Ian Murray’s team are fifth in the Championship, knocking on the door of the play-off spots.

So far in this competition, Raith have overcome Auchinleck Talbot and Linlithgow Rose, so now get the chance to take out top division opposition.

On Tuesday night, Rovers enjoyed a memorable victory in the Challenge Cup at Dens Park.

Raith came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Dundee, before sneaking through via a penalty shootout.

Motherwell meanwhile are in terrible form, beaten again last weekend, this time 3-1 by Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

Steven Hammell’s men are now winless in 11 Premiership games, dating back to 29 October, yielding a mere four points from these fixture.

This saw the Steelmen slip into the relegation play-off place, above only Dundee United on goal difference.

The Well did beat Arbroath in round four, Mikael Mandron with both at Gayfield, but could be vulnerable to an upset this time.

Will Raith be celebrating a famous win at Stark’s Park?
