Match Preview:

John McGlynn’s Livingston side are the visitors to Stark’s Park this Saturday, as Raith Rovers play just their second home match in six weeks.

After last weekend’s victory over Stirling Albion in the Scottish Cup, Rovers will be looking for their first back-to-back wins since the opening two league fixtures of the season, when they pieced together two consecutive victories over Dumbarton and Alloa.

Livingston on the other hand, are looking for their first league win since September, after a poor sequence of results which has seen them slip to the foot of the table. When the two sides last met on the 20th of September, Livingston were residing in fifth place in the Championship table, after picking up seven points from their opening five fixtures. However, Rovers 1-0 win that day thanks to a Martin Scott goal, has since signalled a poor run of league form, although the Lions have progressed to April’s Challenge Cup final, where they’ll contest the trophy with Alloa Athletic.

Livingston have yet to win an away game in the league this season, although conversely, have one of the better away defensive records in the Championship, with only Hearts, Rangers and Hibernian, conceding fewer goals on their travels this season.

The first meeting between the two teams was back in August 1999, and although the match finished one apiece, this fixture has a history of producing a winner, with only four matches between the two finishing all-square.

Raith Rovers are unbeaten in the last five games that they’ve played on December the 6th although four of those five matches have ended up as draws. In all, Rovers have played 12 times on that date, winning three, losing four, and drawing five. See the complete record here.

Livingston hold the upper-hand in recent meetings between the clubs, with six wins and just three defeats from the last ten meetings. A win for Raith Rovers will see them retain fifth spot in the Championship table, while Livingston will be hoping to close the seven point gap to ninth placed Cowdenbeath.

Saturday’s match referee will be Crawford Allan.
