Match Preview:

After starting their season with a fine 1-0 away win at Dumbarton last weekend, Rovers kick-off their home campaign with a visit from Clyde this Saturday afternoon.

The win was their first victory with a clean sheet on the road since a 2-0 win over Arbroath just before Christmas, and it was one of just two wins on the opening day of League One, which suggests the division is going to be another tight affair this season.

Clyde were one of six teams involved in a draw, with a 1-1 result against East Fife.

Danny Lennon’s men were the dominant side for the first 45 minutes, taking the lead from the penalty spot thanks to David Goodwillie, but they were pegged back in the second-half through Anton Dowds equaliser after 60 minutes.

Clyde ended a long spell in the bottom tier last season, coming through the League One playoffs after a losing out on the title on the final day to Peterhead.

It brought to an end a run in League Two which started back in 2010, and despite their newcomer status in League One, Lennon has assembled a side which will be expecting to challenge in the upper echelons of the league this campaign.

This will be the first meeting between the sides since the 2007-208 campaign when Rovers were 3-0 winners at Clyde in a League Cup first round tie, but you have to go back 28 years to find a home win by Raith in this fixture, with a 1-0 victory in the First Division in March 1991.

Unsurprisingly with statistics like that, Raith have a poor record in this matchup in general, with just that one win and two draws from the last 10 meetings between the clubs.

Saturday’s match referee will be Euan Anderson.
