Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be looking for their first win in five league games this Saturday, when they take on Stranraer at Stark’s Park.

They go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Peterhead last weekend, a result which saw them slip down to second in the table, a point behind Falkirk.

Stranraer on the other hand go into the game on a high, after an excellent 3-0 win over Clyde last weekend, a result which lifted them off the bottom of the table, after their first win since defeating Raith midway through August.

That win didn’t seem likely at one stage, with Rovers 2-1 up with just seven minutes remaining, thanks to goals from Brad Spencer and Michael Miller, however, late goals from David Dangana and Cameron Elliott saw the Blues take all three points.

That meant Rovers had beaten Stranraer just once in their last five meetings, with their only win coming back over a year ago, with two goals from Kevin Nisbet sealing a 2-1 win, despite Ewan Murray’s first-half red card.

Raith Rovers still have the upper hand in recent years however, with five wins and two draws from the last 10 meetings between the sides.

Saturday’s match referee will be Lloyd Wilson.
