Match Preview: 

All roads lead to Station Park this weekend, as Raith Rovers and Forfar Athletic duke it out for a place in final of the Championship playoffs.

The tie is finely balanced, with Rovers holding a slender one goal advantage, thanks to a 2-1 win on Tuesday evening at Stark’s Park.

Kevin Nisbet had handed Rovers the advantage in the 40th minute, but that lead was short-lived, with John Baird restoring parity just before the interval.

However, the half-time arrival of Jamie Gullan helped swing the tie in Raith’s favour, with his 63rd minute smashing off the inside of the post and into the net with just under half an hour remaining.

Despite that advantage, Rovers face a big ask in the away tie, especially as they haven’t travelled well this season, with Arbroath, Airdrie, East Fife and Forfar all picking up more points on the road.

They’re also up against the side with the best home record in League One, with the Loons unbeaten at home since December.

While Rovers have lost eight times in the league this term, they’ve never lost by more than a single goal, and they’ve also managed to score in every away league game this season.

The teams can’t be split in terms of the most recent head-to-head record, with four wins and two draws apiece from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Euan Anderson
