Match Preview:

Raith Rovers travel to Greenock this weekend, looking to put a poor run behind them by taking maximum points against a Morton side who are currently six points ahead of Gary Locke’s team, and are unbeaten in four league matches.

Whilst Rovers head into the match on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Falkirk, Morton were gaining ground on Dundee United in second place last weekend, with a 2-1 win over Dumbarton, the goals coming from a Gregor Buchanan own goal and a Michael Tidser penalty.

The win continued Morton’s excellent home form this season, which sees them unbeaten at Cappielow, with only second placed Dundee United picking up more home points in the Championship this term.

This will be just the second meeting between the sides this season, after the scheduled meeting at Stark’s Park in November was moved, due to Morton’s Scottish Cup tie against Beith having to be rescheduled due to a cancellation.

That last meeting was back in October, when a Ross Forbes free-kick was enough to separate the teams in a 1-0 win for The ‘Ton.

It was Morton’s first win in the fixture in ten attempts, and if they were to win on Saturday, it’ll be the first time they’ve managed two successive league wins over the Kirkcaldy club since the 2009/10 season.

Despite the recent set-back, Rovers have an excellent record in this fixture, with seven wins and two draws from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Duncan.
