Match Preview:

Raith Rovers play their final match of the year this Tuesday, when they welcome Queen of the South to Stark’s Park.

The Doonhamers go into this one at the bottom of the table, with no wins in four matches, and desperate for three points which could lift them towards safety.

Raith on the other hand go into the match in fine fettle, after an excellent 5-2 away win at Alloa, a result which lifted Raith back up to third in the table, two points ahead of fourth placed Dundee, and three behind near neighbours, Dunfermline Athletic.

Coincidentally, John McGlynn’s men inflicted a 5-2 defeat on Tuesday opponents the last time they met back in October, with goals coming from Ross Matthews, Dylan Tait, Daniel Armstrong and a brace from Manny Duku doing the damage in Dumfries.

These two sides haven’t met at Stark’s Park on league duty since March 2017, in a game which ended one apiece. Ryan Hardie had given Rovers an early lead, but a disputed Stephen Dobbie equaliser saw the match end all square.

Rovers last home win over the Dumfries side was from that same season, October 2016, when an injury time Mark Stewart goal saw Rovers take all three points.

Rovers have the upper hand in this fixture recently, but only just, with four wins and three draws from the last 10 meetings.

Tuesday evening’s match referee will be Barry Cook.
