Match Preview: 

After the drama, and ultimate disappointment of the international break, the SPFL returns this weekend, with Raith Rovers travelling to Clackmannanshire, to take on Danny Lennon’s Alloa Athletic team.

While Raith’s impressive form has seen them win six of their last nine games, Alloa have also enjoyed an upturn in fortunes, with just two defeats in five after a difficult start to the campaign. Not only has that sequence seen them defeat Dumbarton, they’ve also posted impressive draws against both Falkirk and St. Mirren. Those five points, mean the Wasps have now nudged ahead of Livingston once again at the foot of the Championship table,  and currently reside in ninth place.

Jason Thomson’s late, late goal in the 2-1 win over Morton a fortnight ago, sustained Rovers 100% home record, and they’ll be looking to make it two successive league wins on their travels this Saturday, after the win in Paisley in last month.

The last meeting between these two teams ended in a 3-0 win for Raith, but that didn’t necessarily tell the whole story of the match, which was a reasonably tight affair, at least until James Craigen opened the scoring with a stunning volley from 25-yards, ten minutes into the second period. Further goals from Craig Wighton and Mark Stewart completed the scoring.

Evenly-matched games are a recurring theme in this fixture, and while Rovers have an impressive record at the Indodrill Stadium, you have to go back to 1990 to find the last time the Kirkcaldy club won a match at the venue by more than one goal, a 4-0 victory back in April of that year.

Raith have six wins and three draws from the last ten meetings between the clubs, with Alloa’s only triumph coming in November 2013.

Saturday’s match referee will be Andrew Dallas.
