Match Preview: 

Raith Rovers head to Ayrshire this weekend, looking for their first win in four matches, although to do that, they’ll need to change their barren run in front of goal, which has seen them draw a blank in each of their three matches.

That might be easier said than done however, against an Ayr United side that are heading into this one on the back of a good win over Dundee in midweek, and are under new stewardship, with David Hopkin taking over from the recently departed Mark Kerr.

That 3-1 win at Dens Park moved the Honest Men away from the relegation spots and into seventh, and with the league being so tight, are now only three points outside the promotion playoff spots.

Despite that defeat to Inverness in midweek, Rovers are still in third place in the table, but with a large pack of teams in close pursuit.

These two teams have already met twice this term, and there’s yet to be a goal in either game, although on both occasions, both teams probably felt aggrieved not to take all three points.

Rovers are currently without a win in five attempts versus Ayr, with their last win coming in September 2017, when goals from Lewis Vaughan and Jason Thomson secured a 2-1 victory.

Despite Raith’s winless run versus Ayr, they have an even record against each other in recent years, with three wins and four draws apiece from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be David Dickinson.
