Match Preview

Raith Rovers head to Galabank this weekend, still in with a chance of reaching the ViaPlay Cup knockout stages.

An excellent bonus point victory at Rugby Park against Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening means the Rovers have taken it to the final game, where a win would give them nine points, and depending on results elsewhere, could be enough to seal one of the three best runners up spots.

Ian Murray’s men could even still win the group, providing they defeat Annan and Kilmarnock drop points to Albion Rovers, but if they can get through, it’ll be just the second time they’ve achieved it since the group stages were reintroduced back in 2016.

They’ve given themselves that opportunity thanks to a fine performance in Ayrshire in midweek.

Trailing to an Innes Cameron goal at the interval, Rovers turned the match on its head in the second half, with goals from Dylan Easton and Liam Dick putting Raith in control.

However, an equaliser from Killie defender Stuart Findlay with 10 minutes remaining meant the match went to penalties where Kevin Dabrowski was the hero – pulling off two fine saves to give Rovers the bonus point.

Saturday’s opponents Annan currently sit bottom of the Group F table, after heavy defeats to Kilmarnock and Dunfermline in their first two outings and a slender 2-1 loss to Albion Rovers last weekend.

The two teams have only met once before in a competitive outing, with Raith winning 3-0 in the semi finals of the Ramsdens Cup at Stark’s Park back in 2013.

Saturday’s match referee will be Scott Lambie.
