Match Preview:

After disposing of East Fife in midweek to move to within three points of top-of-the-table Ayr United, Raith host Albion Rovers this Saturday, as they look to gain further ground on The Honest Men.

That’ll be easier said than done however, despite Brian Kerr’s men languishing in ninth spot in the league.

Raith have struggled against Albion Rovers this season, with a return of just four points from three games, with all three games featuring goals and late drama.

Their defeat came in the first meeting back in September, when Alan Trouten and Connor Shields fired the home side two up, and although Greig Spence reduced the arrears, the Cliftonhill side easily held on to take all three points.

Rovers got their solitary win against them in February, when a John Herron double and Jason Thomson effort sealed a 3-1 win, but it was a different story just 11 days later, as Rovers toiled to a 2-2 draw back at Cliftonhill.

Euan Murray and a Jason Marr own-goal had twice handed Barry Smith’s side the initiative, but two goals from Trouten, the second from the penalty spot in injury time, saw Rovers lose ground in the title race.

One thing which should be guaranteed in this fixture is goals, with just two nil nil draws ever over a sequence of 84 matches, while Albion Rovers 31 league games have featured an astonishing 129 goals this season.

Despite their recent poor form against Albion Rovers, Raith have won five and drawn three of their ten most recent meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Graham Beaton.
