Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will look to put their Irn Bru Cup exit behind them this Tuesday, when they travel to Somerset Park, for the rearranged League One fixture with top-of-the-table Ayr United.

Ian McCall’s men are in exceptional form at the moment and are unbeaten since losing to Raith in the previous meeting between the two at the start of September.

Rovers had to come from behind that day after Lawrence Shankland had put the visitors in front, but second half efforts from Lewis Vaughan and Jason Thomson, saw Raith emerge 2-1 winners.

In the seven games since however, the free-scoring Honest Men have won six and drawn one, while taking their goals for tally to 35 in just 12 fixtures, allowing them to overtake Rovers on goal difference.

Raith had a mixed record at Somerset Park last term. Goals from Ross Matthews and Ross Callachan gave them a win on the opening day of the Championship season, but the next fixture in February, saw Rovers lose 1-0, after arriving at the venue without a goalkeeper.

Rovers have the slightly inferior record over the most recent games between the two, with three wins and three draws from their last ten meetings.

Tuesday evening’s match referee will be Barry Cook.
