Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will complete the first quarter of their Championship campaign this Saturday, when they welcome Jim Duffy’s Greenock Morton side to Stark’s Park.

Both teams go into the match on the back of contrasting results from last weekend. Rovers ground out a 1-0 win over Dumbarton thanks to a goal from Lewis Toshney, while a day later, Morton lost by four goals to nil at home to Rangers. Despite that, Morton have started the season impressively, and currently sit sixth in the Championship, four points behind third place Raith, after just two league defeats, the other coming back in August to Hibernian.

Whilst Rovers now have the best home record in the division, with four wins from four, they’ll have to be wary of a Greenock team, who have the third best away record in the league, after wins over Livingston and Alloa, and a draw at Palmerston Park against Queen of the South. Only Rangers and Falkirk have picked up more points on their travels.

Most of Jim Duffy’s summer signings have made a real difference to the squad, with Lucas Gasparotto slotting in well at centre-half after arriving on-loan from Ibrox, while Bobby Barr has impressed on the left-wing, after leaving Ray McKinnon’s previous club, Brechin City.

Up-front, Denny Johnstone has scored three goals since signing a loan-deal which saw him leave Birmingham City temporarily, and another loan striker, Alex Samuel could be paired alongside him, after he was acquired from Swansea City.

Morton’s last win at Stark’s Park was a fourth round Scottish Cup tie in 2012, which finished 2-1, but overall, they’ve a poor recent record against the Kirkcaldy club. Their last league win at Stark’s Park was in 2010, and in the last 21 league meetings between the clubs, Morton have only won on four occasions.

The most recent head-to-head league fixtures between the two clubs, sees Raith with five wins, compared to Morton’s two.

Saturday’s match referee will be Bobby Madden.
