Match Preview:

Livingston are the visitors to Stark’s Park this weekend, with David Hopkin’s outfit on a similar run to Raith Rovers, with both teams taking just two points from their last six league matches.

Those sequences have seen Rovers drop out of the play-off spots, while Livingston have been unable to clamber out of the relegation equivalent, although a whole host of new players have arrived at the West Lothian club in recent weeks, as they look to move away from ninth place.

Charlie Telfer has arrived on-loan from Dundee United, while right-back, Osman Kakay has also arrived on loan from Queens Park Rangers. Sam Stanton has been acquired on a similar deal from Hibernian, while centre-half, Craig Halkett has been snapped up after leaving Rangers.

Raith Rovers have also added to their roster this week however, with the signing of Ryan Hardie on a short term loan deal, and the Ibrox youngster could be in contention for a place in the squad this weekend

The two meetings so far have produced six goals and a win apiece, with both teams producing 3-0 home wins. Raith began their Championship campaign with a 3-0 victory over Saturday’s opponents, with Mark Stewart opening the scoring after 10 minutes. The goal-scorer was then brought down in the penalty box, allowing Ryan McCord to slot home the second from the penalty spot. Substitute, Mitch Megginson completed the scoring in added-on time.

However, the return match was an entirely different affair, when a Jordan White double and a header from Declan Gallagher sealed a 3-0 win at the Tony Macaroni Stadium.

The result meant that Livi just edged the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, with six wins to Raith four from the last ten meetings. The last drawn match between the pair was away back in August 2012, when the pair played out a goal-less tussle at Stark’s Park.

Saturday’s match referee will be Willie Collum
