East Fife vs Rangers Match Preview
Rangers’ terrific start to the 2019-20 season continues apace and there should be no let-up when they visit East Fife in their opening Scottish League Cup tie of the campaign.
The Gers won five of their six warm-up friendly matches to nil and drew the other 1-1 against Blackburn and have kept up the good work in the competitive action, winning seven out of eight so far plus a 0-0 away stalemate which comfortably secured Europa League progress.
If anything, Steven Gerrard’s side appear to be getting stronger and a 6-1 Premiership thrashing of Hibernian and a 7-3 aggregate European triumph against useful Danish side Midtjylland in the past week amply illustrate their improvement.
There is no saying how far Rangers might go this term and the tide could be shifting in Scottish football with Celtic having bowed out of the Champions League this week.
East Fife, meanwhile, have done very well just to make it into the last 16 of the League Cup and the key achievement for Darren Young’s team in the group stage was an excellent 2-0 victory away to Dundee United, who are a division above them.
In fairness, East Fife’s other results this season have been pretty ordinary and they are likely to be defeated pretty decisively by a Rangers side who are scenting silverware.
