Match Preview

After a thrilling, last-gasp 3-2 win over Queen’s Park last weekend, Raith Rovers will put league business to one side this Saturday, when they kick off their SPFL Trust Trophy campaign against Northern Irish side, Cliftonville at Stark’s Park.

This will be The Reds first time they’ve participated in the competition, and while Jim Magilton’s side started the season in fine form, a run of three league games without a win has seen them slip to fourth in the standings.

While this is the sides first competitive fixture, they’ve met three times in friendly matches, with Rovers winning all three, the last coming in 2005, when Rovers triumphed 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw, to win the Shine A Light charity trophy.

Cliftonville have a smattering of players who have SPFL experience, with central defender Luke Turner previously on the books of Aberdeen, right back Conor Pepper played for Morton and Inverness, while forwards Joe Gormley and Sam Ashford played for St Johnstone and Ayr United respectively.

Ben Wilson is the club’s top scorer this term, with four goals in just three appearances, since joining from Brighton in the summer.

Saturday’s referee will be Grant Irvine.
