Match Preview: 

Raith Rovers have the chance to put their Scottish Cup disappointment behind them this Tuesday evening, when they get the opportunity to move five points clear of their rivals in the contest for a top-four spot in the Championship.

Alloa Athletic are the visitors in a fixture that was initially scheduled to be played on Boxing Day, but failed to beat the inclement weather conditions. The Clackmannanshire outfit have recently had a change of management, after Danny Lennon stepped down with the club sitting at the foot of the table, allowing Jack Ross to take over the reins. Ross had been the assistant to Ian Murray at Dumbarton, but his most recent position was as a youth coach at Heart of Midlothian. The new manager will be looking for his first points as the Wasps manager, with his two matches to date, involving defeats to St. Mirren and Falkirk.

The fixture will be the third time the two teams have faced up to each other this season, and the team from the Indodrill Stadium have yet to score a goal, or take a point.

In the first meeting at Stark’s Park back in August, James Craigen got the ball rolling with a wonder strike early in the second-half, and his sizzling volley was followed up by Craig Wighton scoring the only goal of his loan spell, before Mark Stewart completed the scoring with five minutes remaining in a 3-0 win.

The second meeting was a far tighter affair, as Grant Anderson’s late goal with his first touch after coming on as a substitute was all that separated the teams back in October. That 1-0 win was Raith’s fifth consecutive league victory, a result which helped move Rovers up to second place in the Championship.

Alloa are without a win at Stark’s Park in 14 visits, with their last victory a 1-0 win back in April 2006. Indeed, the Wasps have only one once in the last ten league meetings, with Rovers winning six and drawing three.

Tuesday night’s match referee will be Greg Aitken.
