Match Preview

After last week’s dramatic late win over Dundee United at a packed Stark’s Park, Raith Rovers will be looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the table, when they travel to Somerset Park to take on Ayr United.

The Honest Men are under new management, after appointing Scott Brown to replace Lee Bullen last month.

The former Aberdeen midfielder and Fleetwood Town boss has had a good start to his tenure in Ayrshire, leading them to wins over Queen’s Park and Airdrie in the league, and losing narrowly to Dundee United, and Rangers in the Scottish Cup.

Those results have lifted Ayr up the Championship table to fifth, four points outside the final playoff place, and four points above the relegation zone.

This will be the third meeting between the sides this term, with Rovers taking four points from six.

Rovers won the first meeting at Somerset Park in September, with Dylan Easton’s brace handing Rovers a two goal lead at the interval, although Rovers had to hang on in the second, with Anton Dowds reducing the deficit.

The return game at Stark’s Park just before Christmas was one of the most remarkable games of the season.

Despite Ayr playing with 10 men for over half the game, Rovers had to fight back not just once, but twice, after Ayr led 3-2 and then 4-3, with Lewis Vaughan’s hat-trick and a goal from Sam Stanton earning Rovers a point on a frustrating evening.

Saturday’s match referee will be Graham Grainger
