It has been a troubling run in the 2022/23 Scottish League Cup for East Fife. However, they will be confident against Buckie Thistle at Bayview Stadium as the visitors have also lost all three of their cup fixtures.

East Fife to Win

East Fife vs Buckie Thistle Fixture Preview

East Fife

Alloa Athletic were fortunate to get away with a win against East Fife. The Fifers will not make the same mistake against Buckie Thistle, who have emerged as Group C’s whipping boys. Stevie Crawford will want nothing but a win at the Bayview Stadium as they put pressure on Ross County and Alloa Athletic above them.

Buckie Thistle

It is going from bad to worse for Buckie Thistle in the Scottish League Cup. The Jags have been taken to the cleaners by their rivals with 10 goals conceded in their three outings. The only positive from these outings have been the emergence of Sam Urquhart as a reliable scorer, who has scored twice in his three outings.
