Match Preview:

Raith Rovers are looking to make it three wins from their four matches this weekend, when Queen of the South visit Stark’s Park this Saturday.

With the division currently so tight, a win would lift Raith level on points with the Doonhamers, who currently reside in fifth place in the table.

It’s been something of a mixed bag for Rovers in this fixture so far, with two defeats and a single victory from the three meetings to date.

Jean Yves M’Voto scored with a late header at Palmerston Park in September, but it was no more than consolation, as Queens ran out deserved 3-1 winners.

Rovers come out on top in October when the two met at Stark’s Park, after a late Mark Stewart goal was enough to seal a 1-0 win, although the Dumfries side must have been kicking themselves, after looking the likelier winners for the bulk of the match.

The most recent meeting was in February, and again, M’Voto was Raith’s scorer with a header on the hour mark, but it failed to spark a revival, with Queens holding on for a 2-1 win.

That win was Queens last in the league, and in the four matches since, they’ve picked up just a solitary point.

That sequence has left Gary Naysmith’s side requiring a another win or two to be sure of staying up this term, after a run of just two defeats in ten between December and February appeared to see them safe.

Rovers have a slight advantage in the most recent head-to-head meetings, with five wins to Queens four from the last ten match ups.

Saturday’s match referee will be Colin Steven.
