Match Information:

Raith Rovers welcome Falkirk to Stark’s Park this weekend, looking to extend their winning streak to five matches.

Rovers last gasp win over Forfar last Saturday, extended their lead at the top of the table to two points over East Fife, with Falkirk a place and point further back.

Ray McKinnon’s men have tasted defeat just once this term, a 1-0 loss at Clyde back in August, although they did lose 2-0 to Raith in the Challenge Cup at Stark’s Park just four weeks ago, when two penalties from Regan Hendry took John McGlynn’s men into the fourth round, where they’ll face Glenavon.

It’ll be a much changed side which will take the field this Saturday however, with the Bairns making eight changes for that Caramel Wafer Cup tie.

That win was just Rovers second over Falkirk in 11 meetings, with Raith’s last victory a 4-2 triumph back in October 2016, when goals from Iain Davidson, Declan McManus and a double from Mark Stewart sealed Gary Locke’s team an excellent away win.

You have to go back some way to find Rovers last home win in the league against Saturday’s opponents, with goals from David Smith and Grant Anderson handing Rovers a 2-1 win back in November 2012.

Saturday’s match referee will be Greg Aitken
