Raith Rovers face another huge game this weekend, as they look to secure their second position in the Championship.
The race for the top four became even tighter in midweek, after wins for Dundee and Inverness bunched everyone even closer together.
Rovers are now second only on goal difference from the Dens Park side, while Inverness now sit in the final playoff spot, just three points behind John McGlynn’s men.
Dunfermline and Queen of the South now sit fifth and sixth respectively, but are also just five and six points behind Rovers, which means a tense and exciting end to the season is on the cards.
Arbroath are next up at Stark’s Park on Saturday, with the Angus club also in desperate needs of points.
The Angus club are only out the relegation spots on goal difference from Morton, with a win last week over Alloa a vital result after a run of five games without a win.
Despite the Smokies tough campaign, the points have been split evenly so far between these teams. Rovers were convincing winners on the opening day of the season, with goals from Daniel Armstrong, Reghan Tumilty and Regan Hendry sealing a 3-0 win, that could easily have been more.
It was a different story in February however, when a dominant showing from the Red Lichties at Gayfield saw Dick Campbell’s men deservedly win thanks to a solitary strike from Kris Doolan.
Despite that loss, Rovers have a good record in this fixture, with four wins and four draws from the last 10 meetings.
Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Duncan.
