Match Preview:

Raith Rovers host their first match of the decade this Saturday, and it’ll be a very familiar first foot, as Peterhead come to Stark’s Park for the fourth time this term.

The Blue Toon have already journeyed to Kirkcaldy for a league match, a Scottish Cup fixture and a League Cup group stage tie, and they’ll be looking to avoid defeat at the fourth time of asking this weekend.

Their first encounter came in the League Cup in July, with Rovers running out impressive 3-1 winners, with goals coming from Kieron Bowie, Michael Miller and Lewis Allan.

It was even more comfortable in September, when goals from Grant Anderson, Lewis Vaughan and a brace from Michael Miller handed Rovers a 4-0 League One victory, but it was far tougher the last time the two sides met in the Scottish Cup in November, when Jim McInally’s men must have been wondering how they lost, as they dominated for large stretches of the game, only to lose by a goal to nil, thanks to an early Kieron Bowie goal.

Peterhead do have a win under their belts against Rovers though, with a 2-0 win up at Balmoor, thanks to goals from Jack Leitch and Gary Fraser.

Peterhead go into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Clyde, a result which lifted them up to seventh in the table, although Rovers will be hoping to take advantage of Peterhead’s away form, with just one side picking up fewer points on the road in League One this term.

Rovers hold the upper hand in this fixture, with five wins and two draws from the last 10 meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Ross.
