Match Preview:

After 10-man Raith Rovers battled to a hard earned point against Inverness Caledonian Thistle at the weekend, they head into Tuesday night’s Fife derby, looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the table.

Ross Matthews first half dismissal left Raith with an uphill battle against the league leaders on Saturday, but Aidan Connolly’s goal had given Rovers the lead with half-an-hour remaining, only for Sean Welsh to equalise with 10 minutes to go.

It left Rovers five points behind Billy Dodds side, while Kilmarnock’s win over Hamilton meant Rovers slipped a place in the table to third.

The Pars also drew on Saturday, with a 0-0 draw at Partick Thistle, their fifth draw in six matches, and while they’re still bottom of the table, a win on Tuesday evening could see them move out the relegation zone, depending on results elsewhere.

One of those five draws was the last meeting between the two last month, when Dario Zanatta had given Rovers an early lead, only for Kevin O’Hara to equalise with 10 minutes to go.

The draw meant Rovers are unbeaten against Dunfermline in four games, however, they don’t have a great record at East End Park, with their last league win coming back in 2009, when goals from Grant Murray and Damian Casalinuovo gave Rovers a 2-0 win.

The sides are split right down the middle in terms of recent results, with three wins and four draws apiece from the last 10 meetings.

Tuesday night’s match referee will be Alan Muir.
