Raith Rovers are on their travels for the third consecutive weekend this Saturday, as they head to Recreation Park to take on an Alloa side who sit fifth in the Championship.

The game will be Paul Hartley’s 100th competitive match in charge of the Wasps, and they former Raith player has enjoyed an almost unblemished record at his time at the ‘Rec. Two successive promotions followed his arrival in 2011, while this season has seen the club exceed most experts predictions, with the side currently sitting just one point outside the play-off places.

Alloa will be looking to build on their two consecutive wins in recent weeks, a 2-0 win over Cowdenbeath, and a 3-0 triumph over Highland side Inverurie Locos, in the Scottish Cup

Raith will be hoping to bounce back after last week’s 2-0 defeat at Dens Park, a result that ended the club’s ten game unbeaten run in the league. The match was the first occasion that Raith have failed to score a goal in a match since August, when coincidentally,  the opponents were also Dundee.

While Raith won the first league encounter against Alloa 4-2 thanks to goals from Grant Anderson, Calum Elliot and a Joe Cardle double, they’ve found Recreation Park a difficult hunting ground in recent years, failing to register a win there in their last six league and cup visits. Their last win at the venue was a 3-2 victory back in April 2007.

Raith do however have the upper-hand in the last ten league meetings, with six wins compared to Alloa’s two.

Saturday’s match will be refereed by Craig Thomson.
