Match Preview:

After a weekend of inactivity, Raith Rovers are back in action on Wednesday evening, when they travel to Easter Road to face league champions, Hibernian.

Raith’s enforced layoff was caused by Hibs taking part in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, and they were close to making it to their second successive final, only to be cruelly denied by Jonny Hayes late deflected strike.

In terms of other results, it was a mixed bag for John Hughes side, with Dumbarton’s win seeing them move back up to seventh, while Ayr closed the gap to three points, with a point at Morton. However, St. Mirren’s last minute loss to Dundee United, means Raith can move four clear of the Buddies and six ahead of Ayr with a victory in this one.

It’ll be the fourth time the two sides have met this term, and to date, the fixtures have yet to produce a winner.

A 0-0 draw was played out at Stark’s Park back in October, while the two sides drew one apiece when they met at Easter Road on Christmas Eve.

Jean Yves-M’Voto headed Rovers in front early in the second-half, and Rovers were moments away from a notable victory, before Martin Boyle equalised for the hosts with two minutes remaining.

It was the same scoreline the last time the two sides met in February, when Raith again took the lead via a Ryan Stevenson thunderbolt, before another exquisite goal from Jason Cummings, again meant the sides shared the spoils.

If Rovers can avoid defeat on Wednesday night, then it’ll be the first time they’ve went unbeaten against Hibs for an entire league season since the 1995/96 campaign.

Raith are currently unbeaten in four consecutive league matches against Hibs, and have won two and drawn four of the last ten league meetings.

Wednesday evening’s match referee will be Greg Aitken.
