Match Preview:

Raith Rovers have the chance to put their derby disappointment behind them this Saturday, by moving back into the play-off positions with a win over Falkirk at Stark’s Park.

Admittedly that’s something they’ve struggled to do in recent times, with the last home league win over the Bairns coming back in 2012, when goals from Grant Anderson and David Smith secured a come-from-behind 2-1 win.

They have had one other competitive win in Kirkcaldy since then however, when a Greig Spence goal was enough to put Rovers into the Ramsdens Cup semi-final draw at the expense of the Bairns back in September 2013.

Since then though, Falkirk have enjoyed their trips to the Lang Toun, and are now on a run of seven games without loss at Stark’s Park.

Both teams are going into the match on the back of a defeat, with Peter Houston’s men going down to defeat against Hibernian on Hogmanay thanks to a late Kris Commons free-kick, after Jason Cummings had earlier equalised a Craig Sibbald opener.

Although Rovers failed to capitalise on that result on the second of January when they went down to that 2-0 defeat to Dunfermline, a win for Rovers this weekend would lift them above Peter Houston’s men in the table, despite having played a game fewer this season.

Both teams have a win apiece from this fixture this term. Goals from John Baird and Tom Taiwo sealed a 2-0 win for Falkirk at Stark’s Park back in September, while Rovers emerged victorious from a six-goal-thriller at the Falkirk Stadium in October, after a double from Mark Stewart, and single strikes from Iain Davidson and Declan McManus cemented a 4-2 victory.

The most recent head-to-head record between the clubs sees Rovers with just two wins and four draws from the last 10 match ups.

Saturday’s match referee will be Andrew Dallas.
