Perhaps a welcome break from league football as Falkirk & Raith Rovers face off to decide who makes it to next stage of the Scottish Cup. All the pre-match information is available here!

Falkirk and Raith Rovers should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting Raith Rovers have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 10-4-1 (win-draw-loss) from 15 matches.

Raith Rovers form and stats

Rovers's mission in Scottish Cup last season failed in the 3rd round.

Raith Rovers have an excellent away record in the Championship so far with 4-2-1 from 7 games. In general it has been a productive period now for Rovers as they haven't lost any of their last eleven games.

Rovers had fun at their own home (Falkirk Community Stadium) last time out, beating Greenock Morton 2-1. A. Connolly and E. Ross scored.

Before that one, a nice away victory 3-0 at Hamilton Academical.

Rovers have another match that requires travelling in just three days, a Challenge Cup game vs Inverness CT. A back-breaking itinerary for the guests!

Rovers are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 11 times in 7 away games so far. It's not easy to score on Rovers as they have only conceded 4 goals from these away games.
