Leagues Tipped:

After delivering a full house from Ibrox on Wednesday night, SlipsTips is back with a Bet Builder for Thursday's Scottish League Cup tie between Celtic and Raith Rovers.

Celtic vs Raith Rovers (Thursday, 19:45)

Celtic will be looking to rediscover their mojo when Raith Rovers pitch up at Parkhead in the Premier Sports Cup on Thursday night.

The Hoops latest reality check away at Livingston on Sunday followed hard on the heels of throwing away a two-goal lead to lose 4-3 to Real Betis last midweek.

Celtic have shown a marked improvement under Ange Postecoglou's stewardship but they will be keen to restore some confidence in the league cup against second-tier Raith.

John McGlynn's men punched above their weight in the Scottish Championship last season but they have made a mixed start to the new campaign, posting two wins, one draw and two defeats thus far.

Indeed, Rovers claimed the scalp of Aberdeen in the last round but beating the Bhoys in their own backyard looks like a bridge too far for the Fifers.

Unsurprisingly, Celtic are heavily fancied on Thursday night but combining the hosts to qualify with over one Raith Rovers card will bring about a backable 4/5 shot at Bet 365.

Postecoglou may well shuffle his pack on Thursday night but he will be equally keen to take a major step towards securing some silverware at the first attempt.

As such, I'm more than happy to back the Parkhead club seal their passage to the last-four, but I'll also back Raith Rovers to pick up at least a couple of cards at Celtic Park.

The Kirkcaldy club sit top of the early-season Scottish Championship disciplinary standings, with their 2.4 yellow card per-game average, collecting 2+ cautions in 4/5 league outings so far.

What's more, three of the four sides to visit Celtic Park on domestic duty this season have left with at least two bookings, not to mention referee David Munro is averaging over five cards per-game this term.
