Match Preview:

Raith Rovers make the short journey to Methil this weekend, for the third Fife derby of the season.

The two sides can barely be separated at the top of the table, with Rovers still leading the way, but only by a single goal, with East Fife in second place, while Airdrie are also tied on the same amount of points, but with an slightly inferior goal difference.

Adding to the congestion at the summit are Falkirk, who despite being fourth, are just a solitary point behind the three aforementioned teams.

The first meeting between these two teams came in August, with the Fife coming out as comfortable winners, despite Lewis Allan giving the visitors an early lead.

Anton Dowds, Chris Higgins and Ryan Wallace gave East Fife a three one advantage though, and despite Jamie Gullan reducing the arrears, Scott Agnew made the points safe in injury time.

It was a draw the last time the two teams met in October, with Steven Boyd putting Darren Young’s men into the lead, only for Brad Spencer to level the scoreline before half time, in a game which ended 1-1.

Rovers last win over East Fife came back in Match, when two goals in the last three minutes from Iain Davidson and Kevin Nisbet secured a 2-1 win at Bayview.

Rovers have won five and drawn two of the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Greg Aitken
