Match Preview

After a narrow defeat to Hibs at Easter Road in the Viaplay Cup last weekend, the big games just keep coming for Raith Rovers, as they travel to Dunfermline on Saturday for the second Fife derby of the season.

The two have already met in the group stages of the League Cup at Stark’s Park back in July, and there was little between the teams on the opening day, as Dylan Easton’s goal cancelled out Lewis McCann’s opener in a 1-1 draw, although the visitors won the bonus point after winning the penalty shoot out.

Draws have been something of a recurring theme in this fixture, with three of the four meetings in our last season together in the SPFL Championship ending all square, while 6 of the last 10 have ended with the points being shared.

Another trend in this fixture, which Rovers will be hoping to reverse on Saturday, is that visiting sides generally don’t come out on top.

Rovers last win at East End Park was in the second round of the Challenge Cup 10 years ago, while their last league win at the venue was way back in 2009, when goals from Grant Murray and Damian Casalinuovo sealed a 2-0 win.

Both these teams have started the season strongly, taking four points from a possible six, with the Pars following up a win over Airdrie on the opening league game of the season, with an impressive 1-1 draw at Tannadice against title favourites Dundee United.

Saturday’s match referee will be Steven McLean.
