There will be a dedicated e-ticket turnstile in both the Penman Family and Turnbull Hutton Stands. Your ticket will then be scanned by one of the turnstile operators. You can either present the electronic version (on your phone) or print it off and bring it to the game.
Dumbarton fans will be housed in section E of the Turnbull Hutton Stand.
Raith Rovers host Dumbarton this Saturday, with the home side looking to reclaim second place in the League One table.
Last weekend’s 2-1 loss to Forfar saw them leapfrogged in the table by the Loons, with East Fife close behind in fourth.
Like last weekend however, they find themselves up against one league’s form sides, with the Sons unbeaten in their last seven league matches.
Jim Duffy made a slow start to his Dumbarton tenure after replacing Steve Aitken in October, but after a prolonged flirtation with the bottom two spots for the majority of the season, their recent good run has eased them away from the relegation places, and they now reside sixth in the table.
In Dom Thomas, Dumbarton have one of the most in-form players in the division, with the on-loan Kilmarnock forward on a run of eight goals in just six appearances.
You can normally guarantee goals whenever these sides meet, with the three matches this term producing 16 between them.
Rovers were 5-1 winners back in September, with goals coming from Lewis Vaughan, Kevin Nisbet, Liam Buchanan and a double from Nathan Flanagan.
There were four separate Rovers scorers the last time the sides met at Stark’s Park in December, with Daniel Armstrong, Euan Murray, Nisbet and Vaughan getting the vital strikes in a 4-2 home win.
Their most recent meeting was just last month, and despite taking the lead through Flanagan, Rovers only avoided another away defeat by the skin of their teeth, thanks to an injury-time equaliser from Nisbet.
Rovers have the upper hand in this fixture recently, but only just, with four wins and three draws from the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be Greg Aitken.
