Grant Murray knows his Rovers side will have to be at its very best if they’re to return from the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday with three points.

The two will meet on Falkirk’s new synthetic surface, with Gary Holt’s side three points behind Murray’s men.

The Rovers boss said: “It’s up to each club what surface they put down and there are four in our league who have it - so we’ve got no problem there.

“We’ve already had a couple of very close games with them this season, so if we’re to take anything we’ll need to be at out best.”

The Rovers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 Scottish Cup win over Dundee on Saturday.

The draw then paired Murray’s side with Terry Butcher’s Hibs.

“We were delighted with the draw,” said the boss.

“We’ll be big under-dogs and there’s still a lot of football to be played between now and then.

“Everybody wants a home draw, but going to Easter Road will give the players a chance to play there before the cup final.

“It’s credit to the players that we were in the draw and they can look forward to a massive tie.”

Raith expect to be without both Liam Fox and Paul Watson for the trip to Falkirk.
