Match Preview: 

Raith Rovers head to Station Park this weekend, looking for their fourth consecutive win, and fourth consecutive clean sheet.

The Loons got back to winning ways at the weekend, with a 2-0 win over Montrose, a result which takes them into the Championship playoff positions, just behind third placed Falkirk.

Jim Weir’s side had a large turnover of playing staff over the summer, with key players such as John Baird and Brad Spencer, both now at Raith, and Thomas Reilly moving on from the club.

However, Weir has augmented his side with amongst others, Ross Forbes, Callum Tapping and ex-Raith midfielder, Scott Robertson.

They also managed to hold on to one of the finest goalkeepers in the lower leagues in Marc McCallum, who has proven his worth time and time again this term, with a string of excellent performances, which deservedly saw him presented with the Player of the Month award for August.

These two sides became well acquainted with each other last term, facing off six times in all, with four league meetings and the Championship playoffs.

Rovers emerged victorious in the latter tie, winning 2-1 at Stark’s Park, thanks to goals from Kevin Nisbet and Jamie Gullan, before drawing 1-1 at Station Park in the second leg, thanks to a goal from the penalty spot from Nisbet.

It’s been over 12 years since Rovers last recorded a win at Station Park, a 2-1 victory back in April 2007 in the Second Division.

Rovers have the upper hand in the most recent head-to-head record, with four wins and three draws from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Ross.
