Match Preview

After the drama of the Viaplay Cup group stages, the Championship kicks off this weekend, as Raith Rovers travel to Firhill, to face off against a Partick Thistle side, who somehow missed out on promotion to the Premiership at the death last season.

Leading 3-0 on aggregate with less than 20 minutes remaining of the promotion playoff final versus Ross County, Thistle had been by far the best side over the two legs, but they contrived to concede three times in the final 19 minutes, before eventually losing out on penalties to ensure The Staggies stayed up.

That late drama led to something of an overhaul of the playing squad over the summer, and while a number of key players from last season’s oh-so-close campaign have moved on, Kris Doolan’s squad still looks like it has enough talent within it, to make a decent fist of the season coming.

Like Rovers, they made it out of their group in the League Cup by fine margins.

A penalty win over Peterhead after a 1-1 draw was followed up by an excellent victory at Tannadice against Dundee United, however, defeat to Falkirk on penalties meant they needed a win over Spartans in the final match, which they duly did thanks to a late Brian Graham penalty in the 88th minute of a 2-1 win.

Rovers had mixed fortunes against the Maryhill side last season, taking four points from six at Stark’s Park, but losing both fixtures at Firhill.

Their last win at the venue was in the final weeks of the 2021/22 season, when an injury time winner from Matej Poplatnik saw Rovers take all three points in a 1-0 win.

Rovers just about hold the upper hand in the most recent meetings between the sides though, with four wins and three defeats from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Calum Scott
