Raith Rovers preserved their single point lead at the top of the table on midweek, and they begin the final quarter of the campaign with a home match against Forfar Athletic this Saturday.
Rovers drew one each with second placed Falkirk on Tuesday evening, after Steven MacLean gave the home side the lead just after the interval, only for Declan McManus to equalise midway through the second period.
That result was enough to keep Raith’s nose in front of the chasing Bairns, and they face a Loons side who they are unbeaten against this season.
That said, Rovers certainly haven’t had it all their own way against Stuart Malcolm’s side this term, with the last two meetings both ending all square.
Rovers came out on top in the first meeting in September, but only just. Lewis Vaughan equalised for Rovers at the start of the second half, after Russell McLean gave the home side the lead, and with the points looking like they were going to be shared, Kieran MacDonald popped up with an injury time winner to hand Raith all three points.
There was a lot less excitement in November, when the two teams played out a 0-0 draw at Stark’s Park, and both teams had to make do with a point again in January, with John Baird equalising for Raith after Ross Forbes had given Forfar an early lead.
Forfar currently sit ninth in the table, just two points behind ninth Peterhead, who lie just outside the relegation places.
Both teams have an identical record in recent times in this fixture, with three wins and four draws each from the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be Alan Newlands
