Match Preview:

After last weekend’s hard-fought 1-0 win over Livingston, Raith Rovers return to Stark’s Park this Saturday, to take on a Falkirk side who have experienced a frustrating seven days.

Not only did Peter Houston’s men bow out of the League Cup to Rangers during the week, they did so after drawing 1-1 with Dumbarton last Saturday, after the Sons’ Chris Kane equalised in the final minute.

That last gasp strike meant that Falkirk remained in eighth place in the Championship, after Craig Sibbald’s fifth minute strike, had looked to be enough to move Falkirk into the top half of the table.

Ex-Tannadice boss Houston arrived at the Falkirk Stadium during the summer, replacing Gary Holt who returned to the Norwich backroom staff, and the new boss has presided over a sizable rebuilding process.

In all, nine players have joined the club, with over half of them arriving from one of Edinburgh’s big two clubs. Alan Maybury, Owain Tudor Jones and Tom Taiwo have joined after leaving Easter Road, while Jamie MacDonald and former Raith loanee David Smith have signed after leaving the Hearts. Also joining up were former Ross County midfielder Alex Cooper, ex-Peterbrough midfielder Peter Grant, and striker Rory Boulder, while Aberdeen centre-back Joe Shaughnessy has joined on loan.

The recent head-to-head record in the league couldn’t be any tighter, with both teams on three wins apiece from the last ten meetings. However, Raith are without a win in their last six outings against Falkirk, with their last victory a 2-1 win back in November 2012.

Saturday’s match referee will be Des Roache.
