Match Preview

After bouncing back from the disappointment of the SPFL Trust Trophy Final at the weekend win a win over Queen’s Park, Raith Rovers are looking to edge close to the playoff spots on Tuesday evening, when Hamilton are the visitors to Stark’s Park.

Rovers will be looking to build on that 2-0 win against The Spiders, with goals from Tom Lang and Lewis Vaughan meaning Raith are still in with a chance of challenging for a top four place.

Hamilton on the other hand go into the game on the back of a heavy defeat, and despite the high of that final victory, the Accies were brought back down to earth with a bump on Saturday, when they lost 7-0 to Dundee, a defeat which manager John Rankin described as the most humiliating of his career.

Like Rovers, Hamilton are desperate for the three points, as they look to preserve their second tier status.

The Lanarkshire club are currently propping up the Championship table, one point behind Cove Rangers, although they do have two games in hand. However, a gap has opened up between themselves and Arbroath who sit eighth, with the Red Lichties now six points clear of the bottom, having played a game more.

This will be the two teams fifth and final meeting of the campaign, with Raith winning all three league games to date.

The first meeting was back in August, when goals from Dylan Easton and Jamie Gullan sealed a 2-0 away win, and the margin of victory was the same the last time the two came together at Stark’s Park in August, when goals from Easton, Aidan Connolly and Liam Dick earned Ian Murray’s side a 3-1 win.

It was a tighter affair in the last league fixture in January though, when an early Gullan goal was all that separated the sides.

If Rovers can win this one, it’ll be the first time they’ve completed a clean sweep over Hamilton in the league since the 1966/67 season, back in the old Second Division, when teams only played each other twice.

Rovers have a good record in recent seasons in this fixture, with six wins and two draws from the last 10 meetings.

Tuesday’s match referee will be Euan Anderson.
