Match Preview:

After an excellent win over Championship favourites Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Saturday, Raith return to Stark’s Park this weekend for an SPFL Trust Trophy third round clash with East Fife.

The Methil men are bottom of League one after taking just four points from the first quarter, but reached this stage of the tournament with victories over St Johnstone Colts and Peterhead.

Rovers on the other hand reached the third round with a win over Forfar Athletic, and while the scoreline was a narrow one, with Blaise Riley-Snow’s goal the only goal of the game, but Rovers created enough chances to win two or three matches during a dominant performance.

These two sides have met once before in this tournament, back in 2001, and Rovers bounced back from a two goal deficit to win by three goals to two. Paul McManus and Ross Graham handed the home side a 2-0 lead at the interval, but goals in the second half from Nacho Novo and Shaun Dennis restored parity, before Novo scored the winner with a minute to go.

Rovers also came out on top the last time the two played each other, in last season’s League Cup group stages.

Liam Newton had given East Fife a first half lead, but a penalty from Regan Hendry and a winner from Manny Duku saw Raith home 2-1.

Rovers have the much better record in the most recent meetings, with five wins and three draws from the last 10 matches.

Saturday’s match referee will be Mike Roncone.
