Match Preview:

After a victory over Montrose last weekend by the odd goal in seven, Raith Rovers face another difficult task this weekend, when they travel to Lanarkshire to face Airdrieonians.

The Diamonds sit third in League One, just four points behind leaders Raith Rovers, who kept their noses in front of Falkirk last weekend with that victory over Stewart Petrie’s side.

Ian Murray moved to bolster his squad in the January transfer window, signing left-back, Leon McCann on a permanent deal after impressing on a loan spell from Hamilton, while Andy Ryan was brought back to the club from Dunfermline.

Ryan was already a fan favourite at The Penny Cars Stadium, after a spell at the club in the 2016/17 season, which saw the striker bag 29 goals, and his acquisition helps bolster a forward line which already includes Dale Carrick, Callum Gallagher and Callum Smith.

Rovers have taken all six points from the two encounters this season. The first, back in September, saw Rovers win 1-0, thanks to a second half Grant Anderson goal, while the second meeting at Stark’s Park finished with the same scoreline, with Ross Matthews the only scorer on the day.

Rovers have an extraordinary record in this fixture, winning 12 and drawing four of the last 16 meetings, with their last defeat coming in a League Cup fixture back in 2011.

Saturday’s match referee will be David Dickinson
