Raith Rovers take on Stenhousemuir on league duty for the first time in 15 years this weekend, with John McGlynn’s men looking to put their away day blues behind them.
Rovers have won just twice on the road, and with four League One sides picking up more points on their travels than Raith this term, it’s a situation which will need to improve if Rovers are to return to the second tier.
The Warriors currently sit at the foot of the table, although the dismissal of Brown Ferguson from the manager’s position after three years came as something of a surprise, after he led them to promotion last term.
However, in an evenly contested division which can change dramatically from week-to-week, the Ochilview side lie just four points behind fifth place Brechin City and two points from safety.
Rovers came out on top in the only other meeting between the sides this term, with Kevin Nisbet scoring a brace in a 2-0 win for the home side, however, they did lose by the same scoreline on their last visit to Ochilview, with Alan Cook and Stephen Stirling the scorers in a Challenge Cup tie back in 2015.
There’s only been one draw in the last 18 meetings between these sides, so the chances are there will be a winner on Saturday, and the most recent record between the pair is reasonably even, with six wins and four defeats for Raith in the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be John McKendrick.
