Match Preview:

Raith Rovers have the opportunity to do something they’ve never done this weekend, by qualifying from the group stages of the League Cup for the first time since they were reinstated in 2016.

Rovers may have missed out on a bonus point in midweek after losing to Livingston in a penalty shoot out, but the 0-0 draw was enough to keep Rovers top of the table by a point from Cowdenbeath, and a win this Saturday against Alloa Athletic will see John McGlynn’s men top the group.

Raith had a good record against Alloa last term, taking full points from the three meetings, as the Wasps ended the season bottom of the Championship table and being demoted to League One, and it’s been a summer of change down at the Indodrill.

Peter Grant left the club to take the managerial position at East End Park, with Barry Ferguson leaving Kelty Hearts to replace him.

There’s been a big turnover in the playing squad too, with amongst others, Mark Durnan and Conor Sammon both joining from Falkirk, while Adam King, who was on loan at Stark’s Park last season, has joined after leaving Dundee United.

Rovers are just edging it across the most recent fixtures, with four wins and three defeats from the last 10 fixtures.

Saturday’s match referee will be Greg Aitken.
