Match Preview:

After getting back to winning ways against Banks O’ Dee at the weekend, Raith Rovers will be looking to carry that momentum into the league campaign as they travel to Greenock to take on a resurgent Morton side on Friday evening.

New ‘Ton boss, Dougie Imrie has made a bright start to his managerial career, with a 5-0 win over Dunfermline, and a win and a draw against Ayr and Kilmarnock respectively, as well as a narrow defeat to Motherwell in the Scottish Cup last weekend.

Those league wins have helped lift Morton off the foot of the table and they now reside in eighth place, out of the danger zone, but only two points ahead of bottom side Queen of the South.

Rovers on the other hand, will be hoping that three points here can lift them level on points with second placed Inverness, and within three points of leaders Arbroath, with the rest of the division all playing a day later on Saturday.

This will be the clubs third meeting this term, and Rovers have won on both previous occasions. Indeed, Rovers have now won six in a row against the Greenock side, with Morton’s last win coming in 2017.

Rovers won 1-0 in September when the clubs last met at Cappielow, with Dario Zanatta scoring the only goal.

It was similarly close in the return fixture in November, with Michael Ledger giving the visitors an early lead, but goals from Aidan Connolly and Ethan Ross ensured Rovers would again take the win.

As you’d expect from the glut of wins in recent seasons, Rovers have a good record in this one, with seven wins and three defeats from the last 10 contests.

Friday night’s match referee will be David Dickinson.
