Match Preview

After the top of the table Championship clash with Dundee United last week, Raith Rovers return to cup action, when they welcome Montrose to Stark’s Park, for a fourth round SPFL Trust Trophy clash.

Stewart Petrie’s side are in good form just now, with five wins in their last six outings, and reached this stage of the competition thanks to a 2-0 away win at the Balmoral Stadium against Cove Rangers last time out.

Rovers are in fine fettle themselves, and reached this stage thanks to a fine second half showing against Northern Irish side Cliftonville, with goals after the interval from Adam Masson, Lewis Vaughan and Jack Hamilton sealing a 3-0 win.

If this weekend’s match is as good as the last meeting, then the supporters are in for a treat.

Raith came out on top by a single goal in a seven goal thriller back in January 2023, in a League One classic.

An early goal from Ross Matthews and a brace from Kieron Bowie had Rovers three up by half-time. However, any notion that the game was done was quickly dispelled, as Montrose made it 3-2 early in the second period, and while Dylan Tait again seemed to make the points safe with a fourth, only for Aidan Quinn to half the arrears with 15 minutes remaining, ensuring a nervy finish for the home fans.

Saturday’s match referee will be Lloyd Wilson.

Head-To-Head Record

Raith Rovers Wins: 36
