 Match Preview: 

After the huge disappointment of last weekend’s 4-0 loss to Dumbarton, Rovers head into this Saturday’s match with Dundee United, desperate for a result to keep their noses in front of Ayr United.

The gap remains at four points after the Honest Men also suffered a heavy defeat last weekend, but with the two scheduled to meet on the final day of the season, Raith will be looking to avoid the potential prospect of a last-gasp, winner-takes-all affair.

Both teams go into this one in poor form, with United losing their last two, after defeats to Hibernian last weekend and St. Mirren in midweek, a result which leaves Ray McKinnon’s men fourth in the table, a point behind Morton, and four behind second placed Falkirk.

Rovers have yet to beat Dundee United this season, although they have taken a point from them on two occasions.

The first was in August, when goals from Jordan Thompson and Kevin McHattie saw Raith fightback from two goals down to salvage a point, while there were no goals in the second meeting at Stark’s Park in December.

It was a different story in February though, when United ran out convincing 3-0 winners.

While United have only lost once at Tannadice this term, Rovers will be hoping to take advantage of their indifferent away form, which has seen them win-less on their travels since December last year.

Rovers have a reasonable record in the most recent league meetings, with three wins and three draws from the last ten match ups.

Saturday’s match referee will be Craig Charleston.
