Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be looking to make it eight games unbeaten this weekend, when they head to Dumfries, to face Queen of the South.

Allan Johnston’s side were the last team to get the better of Raith in a league game back in early September, but since then Rovers have lost just once, to Celtic in the League Cup.

It’s a different story for the Doonhamers though, who have won just once in seven league games since that win at Stark’s Park, and now sit eighth in the Championship, one point clear of Morton, and three ahead of bottom side Dunfermline.

Rovers go into this one on the back of a win over Ayr United, although it was far from comfortable.

John McGlynn’s men were completely dominant in the first half, with goals from Ethan Ross and Dario Zanatta deservedly having them two goals up at the interval. However, Ayr fought back in the second half, but despite late pressure, they only had Jack Baird’s goal to show for their efforts, and Rovers held on for all three points.

It was a close run thing the last time Rovers and Queen’s met last time out, with Lee Connelly’s early goal enough to seal all three points, despite the home side having the better of the play for much of the match.

Queen of the South have the upper hand in the most recent meetings, with five wins from the last 10 games, compared to Rovers three.

Saturday’s match referee will be Kevin Clancy
