Match Preview:

Falkirk are the visitors to Stark’s Park this weekend, and while Rangers and Hibernian have taken most plaudits in the Championship this season, the Bairns are also enjoying an exceptional campaign.

Peter Houston’s team have only lost two league matches to date, one each to the aforementioned sides, and currently sit third in the table, one place and three points above Raith Rovers.

Part of that success is down to the form of a striker who is very familiar to Raith fans in John Baird, who has already scored 9 goals this season in all competition. He arrived at Falkirk from Queen of the South midway through last term, and the front man has proven to be an astute addition to Falkirk’s roster, with 14 league goals in 28 starts.

While Baird is in a rich vein of form, it was another former Doonhamer who made the difference the last time the two teams met, with Mark Kerr scoring the only goal of the game in a tight struggle at the Falkirk Stadium in August.

That victory continued Falkirk’s fine record in this fixture, with Raith only winning one of the previous eleven league meetings, a 1-0 win in December last year, thanks to a Ryan Conroy goal from close range.

Raith’s last victory over Falkirk at Stark’s Park came back in September 2013, when a last-gasp Greig Spence goal was enough to see Rovers advance into the semi-finals of the Ramsdens Cup. You have to go back even further for Rovers last home league win over Saturday’s opponents, November 2012, when David Smith and Grant Anderson scored the goals to secure a 2-1 win. Since then, Falkirk have went five Championship matches unbeaten in Kirkcaldy, their longest unbeaten league sequence in Kirkcaldy.

Saturday’s match referee will be Nick Walsh.
