Match Preview:

Raith Rovers return to Stark’s Park for the first time since the middle of October this Saturday, as East Fife visit for the second Fife derby of the season.

Despite losing 5-0 to Rovers earlier in the campaign, East Fife’s decent form since has seen them rise to third in the table, and would move just two points behind Barry Smith’s men with a victory on Saturday.

That victory at Bayview was arguably Raith’s most complete performance of the season to date, with three first-half goals putting Rovers firmly in the driving seat, before pulling even further clear in the second period.

Goals from Bobby Barr, Greig Spence, Liam Buchanan and a brace from Lewis Vaughan gave Rovers their biggest ever win at the home of their Fife neighbour’s.

It’ll be the first time the two have met competitively at Stark’s Park since a League Cup tie in 2010, when goals from Jamie Mole, John Baird and a double from Gregory Tade handed the home side a 4-1 victory.

You have to go back some way for Rovers last loss to the Methil men, ten games and 29 years ago in fact, with a 1-0 loss at Stark’s Park in March 1988.

As such, Raith have a fine record in this fixture, with eight wins and one draw from the last ten competitive meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Stephen Finnie.
