Livi V Rovers

Best hope is that Livingston get dragged right into a relegation scrap and are quite happy to sacrifice the cup in order to concentrate on survival. 

Worst, and more realistic, scenario is a pumping and a half share (less VAT) of a 1100 gate.

Good luck to Raith in the next round. 

We have this conversation every year. If we lose in this round, it would piss me off. However, winning this, then losing in the next round and missing out on the Quarter Finals again would turn me into a seething mess.

15 years since we last made it which is mental given we have spent all but three seasons in the second tier or above.

Since our last QF appearance we've been knocked out by:

3rd Round - Alloa Athletic (2 Divisions below us)
4th Round - Celtic (1 Division above us)
5th Round - Partick Thistle (Same division as us)
3rd Round - East Stirling (2 Divisions below us)
4th Round - Dundee (2 Divisions above us)
3rd Round - Elgin City (1 Division below us)
4th Round - Ayr United (Same division as us)
4th Round - Dundee (1 Division above us)
4th Round - St Johnstone (1 Division above us)
4th Round - Annan Athletic (2 Divisions below us)
4th Round - Greenock Morton (Same division as us)
4th Round - East Fife (Same division as us)
4th Round - Falkirk (Same division as us)
4th Round - Hearts (Same division as us)

 

So Raith wouldn't be the first team 2 leagues down to knock us out, and it's not as if we've been unlucky enough to draw Celtic every season :lol: If we win this I'll be lumping all my cash on us to win the full thing.

A truly abysmal record. You would fancy us to get through to the 5th round this year (for the first time in 12 years lol) but there are so many bad results in there.

Assuming no one else signs between now and the game, and none of this lot are injured:

Schofield

Lawson  -  Lithgow  -  Guthrie  -  ATS

Sibbald  -  Bartley

Lawless  -  Pittman  -  Souda

Dykes

Schofield in goals purely because I'm hoping he's better than Stewart; and we haven't made a mistake by rushing someone in instead of waiting to see if we can get Sarkic back.

Even though I’m a season ticket holder,  and therefore a superior fan, I couldn’t make it to Starks on Friday. However, I’ll endeavour to make it there this week as this match will undoubtedly be a sell-out. Who wouldn’t want to see Livi v Rovers?

This is one of those “all ticket” games where a cash gate will be announced on the Friday night.

It's all ticket in the sense that you'll need to get a ticket from a window before being able to get through the turnstile.

Unless you plan on rocking up without a ticket at 2.55pm you'll be fine.

What about 2.50pm with another 500 punters doing likewise?

Let's be honest, will missing the first half of hour of this really be a disaster? :unsure2:

Good point. Save them the pain of seeing us concede the first couple.

I think I’ll try and be prepared and purchase in advance. Don’t want to miss out.

Also, It's at home and our home form is the best in the Premiership, so you'd think we'd get through to the next match, HOWEVER...……………….we're returning from a 3 week winter break and our form of losing the first game back from breaks makes this  far from certain that we'll get past Raith.
