If Raith Rovers are to gain promotion to the Championship, they’re going to have to do it the hard way, after a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Queen of the South in Wednesday evening.
First half goals from Lyndon Dykes and Callum Murray handed Queen’s a massive advantage going into the interval, and Darren Brownlie’s headed third appeared to seal the tie.
However, David McKay’s late goal gives Raith a sliver of a chance heading into the second leg in Dumfries.
You have to go back to 2011 for the last time Raith won by two clear goals at Palmerston Park, when efforts from Brian Graham and John Baird sealed a 3-1 away win.
You have to go back significantly further for the last time Raith won by more than that in Dumfries though, 1987 to be exact, when Rovers won 5-1 in a First Division encounter.
Rovers do have a decent record in this one, with five wins and two draws from the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be David Munro
