Match Preview:

It’s a top of the table Fife derby this Saturday, as league leaders Raith Rovers take on second place East Fife at Stark’s Park this Saturday.

Rovers are unbeaten at home in the league this season, but East Fife haven’t lost anywhere in the league this term, as Darren Young’s men continue to impress.

The Methil men go into this one on the back of a 1-0 win over Forfar, thanks to a goal from Steven Boyd.

With Rovers drawing 2-2 with Clyde, the goal lifted East Fife level on points with Rovers, although Raith still lead the table on goal difference, with Falkirk just a point behind the Kingdom duo.

This will be the two sides second meeting this term, with East Fife comfortable winners in the first encounter.

Lewis Allan put Rovers in front, but Anton Dowds quickly equalised. Chris Higgins and Ryan Wallace put the home side in the driving seat, and although Jamie Gullan gave Rovers some hope, an injury time strike from Scott Agnew sealed the points for The Fife.

That continued the Bayview side’s impressive recent record against Rovers, with three wins and a draw from the last five meetings.

Rovers do have the upper hand in this fixture in general though, with six wins and one draw from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Barry Cook
