Match Preview:

With just five games left and only three points separating the bottom three sides in the table, Raith Rovers head to East End Park to face local rivals Dunfermline Athletic, in a game that could go a long way to deciding what division Rovers will be participating in next term.

A win would lift Raith level on points with Allan Johnston’s team, who currently sit in sixth place in the table, but a defeat could, depending on results elsewhere, see Rovers bottom of the table by Saturday evening.

John Hughes’s side will be hoping to take advantage of the fact that only St. Mirren and Ayr United have picked up fewer points at home than the Pars this season, although that’ll be easier said than done for a team which has only picked up ten points on the road this term.

This will be the fourth and final Fife tussle of the season, with the previous three encounters producing a win apiece and a draw.

Rovers won the first fixture in August, with goals from Bobby Barr and Mark Stewart sealing a 2-0 win, while it was a fairly tepid meeting at East End Park in November, in a match which ended 0-0.

There was another 2-0 scoreline at Stark’s Park in January, but this time it was for the away side, with goals from Nicky Clark and Lee Ashcroft helping Athletic to a perfunctory win.

Rovers have a poor recent record in this fixture, with just two wins and two draws from their last ten league meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Andrew Dallas.
