Match Preview

After two consecutive draws at Stark’s Park, Rovers play the role of first footers on Tuesday afternoon, when they head to East End Park for the fifth Fife derby of the season.

Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Arbroath means Rovers ended the year three points clear at the top of the Championship, although Dundee United have played a game fewer.

Tuesday’s opponents, Dunfermline Athletic were involved in a similar scenario themselves at the weekend, losing a two goal lead slip at Somerset Park against Ayr United, eventually drawing two each, which sees James McPake’s men fourth in the table, two points clear of fifth place Airdrie.

Rovers have won the last three encounters between the teams this season, after drawing the first encounter in the League Cup back in July.

Sam Stanton scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at East End Park in August, and it was the same scoreline and scorer in the return fixture at Stark’s Park in October.

It was a far more straightforward victory in the Scottish Cup in November though, as Jack Hamilton, Stanton again and Lewis Vaughan scored the goals in a 3-0 win.

If Rovers can win at East End Park again on Tuesday, it’ll be the first time they’ve won four consecutive games against the Pars since 1981.

Gordon Wallace’s side won all three of the derbies in the 1980/81 campaign, as well as winning the final encounter of the 79/80 season.

Tuesday afternoon’s match referee will be Graham Grainger.

Head-To-Head Record:

Raith Rovers wins: 46

Dunfermline Athletic wins: 52

Draws: 31
