Match Preview:

Raith Rovers League season gets underway this Saturday, when they travel to the west coast to face off against Jim Duffy’s Dumbarton side.

The much changed Sons have endured a difficult League Cup campaign, with defeats to Morton, Motherwell and Queen of the South, although a win over Annan Athletic saw Dumbarton finish fourth in the table.

Much like the Raith, the Dumbarton squad has been overhauled during the summer, as they attempt to put last season’s mixed campaign behind them, and push in for a top four position this time around.

Rovers won three and drew one of the four meetings with the Sons last term, and as ever, they were goal laden affairs.

Goals from Lewis Vaughan, Kevin Nisbet, Liam Buchanan and a double from Nathan Flanagan saw Raith pull off a fantastic 5-1 win at Dumbarton in September, and it was another six goal thriller in December, when Vaughan, Nisbet, Daniel Armstrong and Euan Murray scored the goals which helped record a 4-2 win.

Dumbarton secures their only point from Raith in February, when despite an opener from Flanagan, John McGlynn’s men were reliant on a last minute Nisbet equaliser to seal a 2-2 draw.

The Kirkcaldy side were too strong in the last meeting in March though, with Ross Matthews, Buchanan and Nisbet all amongst the goals as Rovers comfortably won by four goals to one.

As a consequence of those results, Rovers now have a decent recent record against Dumbarton, with five wins and two draws from their last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Duncan Williams
