Match Preview:

After losing their 100% home record last weekend, Raith Rovers will be looking to bounce back with a trip to the Tony Macaroni arena this Saturday, to face an improving Livingston side. Two close 1-0 defeats to St. Mirren and Rangers were followed up with an exceptional win on Saturday, when Mark Burchill’s men inflicted a 4-1 defeat on Queen of the South at Palmerston Park.

The Livi Lions went in at the interval a goal down, but Scott Pittman equalised five minutes into the second-half, before Jordan White put the Amber Machine 2-1 up. A double from Liam Buchanan completed the scoring.

The win lifted Livingston above Alloa Athletic in the table, and with just three points now separating themselves and eighth place Dumbarton, a win on Saturday could lift the West Lothian side out of the relegation play-off position.

The last meeting between the two teams was in August, when goals from Mark Stewart, Ryan McCord and Mitch Megginson saw Raith win by three goals to nil. Interestingly, if Rovers win this Saturday, it’ll be the first time they’ve ever won two consecutive league matches against Livingston.

The evidence would suggest that there will be a winner one-way-or-another this Saturday, as this fixture produces very few draws, with just one match finishing all-square from their last 16 meetings, a 0-0 draw back in August 2012.

It wasn’t too long ago that Livingston appeared to have something of a hex over Raith, but there’s now nothing between the two sides in the most recent head-to-head record, with five wins apiece from the last ten meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Crawford Allan.
