Match Preview

Raith Rovers will face Cove Rangers for the third time this season on Saturday, but for the first time, Jim McIntyre’s side will be visiting Stark’s Park.

Indeed, this will be the first time the two sides have met at Stark’s Park at the sixth time of asking, with the rest either taking place at Cove or a neutral venue.

The two came together at the Balmoral Stadium just two weeks ago, in a third round SPFL Trust Trophy Match, with a Connor McBride goal enough for Rovers to enter the hat for the Fourth Round draw, where they were awarded a home fixture against Greenock Morton.

That win meant it was one apiece this season between the sides though, as Cove came out on top in the opening league game of the season, with a brace from Mitch Megginson meant all three points stayed in Aberdeen.

However, that was Cove’s only victory in the first seven league games, as they struggled to adapt to life in the second tier. However, two consecutive and impressive wins has lifted them out of the danger zone and up into sixth.

The first came against Arbroath last Saturday, when two goals from Connor Scully sealed a dominant 2-0 win, and Tuesday evening saw an even more impressive result, when they came from behind to beat Dundee 3-1, thanks to another brace from Scully, both overhead kicks, and another from Mitch Megginson sealing a fine result.

Rovers on the other hand went down by a single goal to nil away to Queen’s Park, and now eighth in the table, just two points above the relegation playoff place.

Saturday’s match referee will be David Dickinson.
