Match Preview

Raith Rovers are back at Stark’s Park this Saturday, with Arbroath the visitors in the both teams final fixture of 2023.

Rovers missed out on the chance of extending their lead at the top of the table last Friday, after sharing eight goals with Ayr United in a thrilling 4-4 draw, while Dundee United were being held nil nil at Hampden by Queen’s Park.

Saturday’s guests, Arbroath are now sitting ninth in the table, and had a missed opportunity of their own last Saturday, with a 1-1 draw with Dunfermline meaning they remained one point behind Inverness at the foot of the Championship.

Leading 1-0, Jim McIntyre’s side looked good for three points, but a set-to between two of their own players, Jermain Hylton and Jay Bird ended up with Bird receiving a second yellow card, and The Pars took advantage of their numerical superiority to bag a last minute equaliser.

It was the second time in a matter of weeks that Arbroath have conceded a last gasp goal to a Fife side at home, with Rovers triumphing 2-1 thanks to a 95th goal from Lewis Vaughan.

It kept up Rovers good record in this fixture in recent years, with Rovers now unbeaten in their last six meetings.

That said, consecutive wins are unusual in this fixture, with the last back-to-back victories being put together by Rovers way back in 2017.

Saturday’s match referee will be Euan Anderson.

Head-to-Head Record:

Raith Rovers wins: 49

Arbroath wins: 34

Draws: 22
