Match Preview:

Raith Rovers head to Recreation Park this Saturday, looking for their fourth consecutive league win, a feat they haven’t achieved since the beginning of the 2010-11 season. They have enjoyed a slightly longer run more recently, with five consecutive league wins, but they were spread over the end of the 2011-12 season, and the beginning of the 2012-13 campaign.

Goals from Ryan Conroy and Grant Anderson helped Rovers to a 2-1 win over Dumbarton last weekend, but they were made to fight all the way for the three points, withstanding a late Dumbarton comeback, that featured a Mitch Megginson goal.

Alloa on the other hand are without a league win since November, but they were unlucky to lose against Rangers last Saturday, where a good performance was ultimately undone by the 1-0 defeat.

This will be the third time the two clubs have met this season, and Raith have yet to lose against the Clackmannanshire side. Rovers won on their last visit to the Rec’ in August thanks to an early goal from Ryan Conroy, but the points were shared in October, after Grant Anderson grabbed an equaliser, after Liam Buchanan put the Wasps in front.

A win for ninth placed Alloa, could see them leapfrog Cowdenbeath into eighth, while a win for Raith Rovers, could potentially see them move to within three points of fourth place Queen of the South, depending on results elsewhere.

Games between these two opponents tend to be low scoring affairs, with just seven goals in the last five outings. However, Raith’s recent record in this fixture is impressive, with five wins and four draws from the last ten league meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Kevin Graham.
