Match Preview:

Raith Rovers head into Saturday’s Play-off Quarter-final second-leg against Hibernian with a slender 1-0 lead, thanks to a late goal from on-loan front-man, Harry Panayiotou in Wednesday evening’s first-leg.

The result was Raith’s second win over Hibernian this season, the first time they’ve achieved such a feat since the 1995-96 campaign, when Rovers won three and drew one of the clubs four Premier League meetings. Even with those results, Hibs still went on to finish above Rovers in the table, finishing fifth to Raith’s sixth, thanks to a slightly superior goal-difference.

Despite the slim lead, Rovers face a tough ask to make it through against a team who have won 14 of their 18 home matches in the Championship this term.

However, Rovers may take some solace from the fact that despite that record, only half of Hibernian’s wins have been by more than a single goal.

If Raith can win through to a semi-final meeting with Falkirk, then it’ll mean that Hibs will be spending a third successive season out-with the top-flight for the first time in their history.

Wednesday night’s result means that Raith Rovers are now 12 games unbeaten, and was hopefully the club’s first step on their journey back to the top-tier for the first time since 1997.
