Match Preview: 

Raith Rovers face another huge game this weekend, when they look to secure a second placed finish against Dundee at Dens Park.

Dundee’s draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Tuesday means Rovers can finish no lower than third in the table now, but with the advantage the runner up position gives in the playoffs, Rovers will be looking to secure it against the only other contender on Saturday.

Finishing in second place would mean Raith go straight through to the semi-finals, and with no team ever winning the playoffs after finishing third or fourth in the table, it’s clear that finishing positions can be vital.

You have to go back some way to find Rovers last win at Dens Park, with a 1-0 Scottish Cup victory in November 2013 the last time Raith were victorious at the venue, thanks to a bizarre own goal from Gary Irvine.

Rovers can take heart from their performances against the Dee this term however, and are unbeaten in their two games to date.

Charlie Adam fired the home side into the lead the last time Rovers visited in October, but Frankie Musonda’s late leveller saw the points shared.

It was a far more one sided encounter at Stark’s Park in January however, when despite falling a goal behind early, Raith deservedly won 3-1, thanks to goals from Kyle Benedictus, Reghan Tumilty and Kai Kennedy.

Despite those results this term, Raith have just two wins and three draws from their last 10 meetings in this fixture.

Saturday’s match referee will be William Collum.
