Match Preview:

Raith Rovers head to Rugby Park for the first time since 1997 this Saturday, to face a Kilmarnock side currently sitting second in the Championship table.

It’ll be Raith’s fourth game in just nine days, following a defeat at Celtic Park last Thursday, before taking four points from six against Partick Thistle and Dunfermline, which lifted the Kirkcaldy side into the final playoff position in fourth.

Tommy Wright’s side go into this one unbeaten in four matches, and if Raith are to take full points from this fixture, they’ll need to do what six out of seven sides have failed to do in the league this season, and breach the Kilmarnock defence.

League leaders Inverness are the only team to have scored against Killie this term, with goalkeeper Zach Hemming keeping a clean sheet in the other six Championship matches.

You have to go back to 2004 for the last meeting between the sides, when Kilmarnock visited Stark’s Park for a Scottish Cup third round tie.

First half goals from Gary McSwegan, Gary MacDonald and Colin Nish put the visitors firmly in control, and while Bincent Talio pulled one back for the hosts in the second half, a comeback was never realistically on the cards.

Despite that loss, Rovers have the better record across the most recent fixtures, with five wins and a draw from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Willie Collum
