Raith Rovers v Celtic (kick-off 12.45pm)

Live from Stark's Park, Kirkcaldy.

The Glasgow giants travel to Fife to take on First Division Raith Rovers. It's the first ever live televised match involving the home club from the ground they have called home since 1891. The match will rekindle memories of the 1994 League cup final when Raith beat Celtic in a penalty shootout, the only national trophy ever won by the club. However, the fortunes of the two clubs have differed much since then with Raith playing in the 1st and 2nd Division, while Neil Lennon's Celtic are about to take on Juventus in the last sixteen of the Champions League. The most recent meeting of the two sides was in the League Cup earlier this season. Celtic won that match in Glasgow by four goals to one, with Gary Hooper netting all of the host's goals. However Stark's Park manager Grant Murray will take some encouragement from the last round of the Scottish Cup when Arbroath took Celtic to a replay after a draw at Celtic Park, which they eventually won with a narrow 1-0 victory at Gayfield Park. Raith Rovers themselves had to rely on an 89th minute goal to beat Highland League Deveronvale in a 2-1 win in Kirkcaldy.

Introduced by Rob Maclean with Pat Bonner and Jimmy Nicholl.

Commentary from Liam McLeod and Steven Thompson.
