Match Preview

After defeating Inverness and putting an end to a hoodoo of their own last weekend, Raith Rovers will be hoping the same thing doesn’t happen to them this Saturday, when they travel to the Excelsior Stadium to face Airdrieonians.

Rovers are on a run of 17 games without a loss to the Diamonds, a sequence which stretches all the way back to 2011.

However, Rhys McCabe’s newly promoted side have started this season impressively, especially at home, with a 100% record coming from victories over Partick Thistle and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The North Lanarkshire side will be looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Gayfield last time out, with the 4-0 loss leaving them seventh in the Championship table.

Rovers on the other hand are now sitting clear at the top of the table, thanks to their late 1-0 win over Inverness, coupled with Dundee United dropping points at home to Morton.

Those results see Rovers two points clear of United, with 13 points from a possible 15 so far.

Rovers last visit to the Excelsior Stadium was back in February 2020, when an early Ross Matthews goal was enough for Raith to take all three points.

Saturday’s match referee will be Lloyd Wilson.

Head-to-Head Record

Airdrieonians wins: 10
