Match Preview

One of the biggest games in Scottish football takes place at Stark’s Park this weekend, with Championship leaders Dundee United travelling to Kirkcaldy to face off against second place Raith Rovers.

Ian Murray’s men bounced back well from after the defeat at Airdrie a fortnight ago, with a solid 2-1 win at Somerset Park against Ayr United last time out, a win which left them just one point behind Jim Goodwin’s side.

However, United have been in fine form recently, since an ignominious start to their campaign saw them lose at Spartans on the opening day of their League Cup campaign, before losing to Partick Thistle at Tannadice in the same competition.

Since then though, United have went without loss in 10 games, winning eight of them, the latest being a convincing 4-1 victory over Queen’s Park last Saturday.

It’s been over six years since the two sides met, with United winning 2-0 in a League Cup group match at Tannadice back in 2017, thanks to goals from Paul McMullan and a penalty from James Keatings.

It was a different story the last time the sides met at Stark’s Park however, which came the season previously, when goals from Craig Barr and Ryan Hardie put Rovers two goals to the good, although a late Simon Murray goal made for an uneasy final 10 minutes for the home support.

Dundee United do have the better of the most recent meetings however, with five wins and two draws from the last 10 fixtures.

Saturday’s match referee will be Alan Muir.
