Match Preview

After Raith Rovers returned to winning ways in the Scottish Cup against Auchinleck Talbot last weekend, they’ll be hoping to get one over another Ayrshire side this Saturday, when they travel to face Ayr United.

The Honest Men are on a great run of seven games unbeaten, with their last defeat coming in October against Dundee, and that sequence sees them top of the Championship, a point clear of second placed Morton.

Rovers on the other hand are now in seventh place, after two straight defeats in the league, although they are one of just three sides to come out on top against Lee Bullen’s men this season, when they last met in September.

Kyle Connell and Sam Stanton gave Rovers a 2-0 half time lead, but they were reined in by Ayr midway through the second period, after goals from Brad Young and Andy Murdoch. However, with both teams pushing for a winner, it was Raith who got it, with a rocket from Scott Brown sealing a 3-2 win.

Rovers have had a poor record at Somerset Park down the years, but they have improved that in recent years, and have lost just once at the ground in their last four visits, with their last win coming in September last year, when goals from Ethon Varian and Dario Zanatta sealed a 2-0 win, in a match which featured three red cards.

Saturday’s match referee will be Kevin Clancy.

 

Head-to-Head Record:

Ayr United wins: 54

Raith Rovers wins: 58
