Match Preview:

After holding out for a draw at a rain lashed Cappielow against Morton on Friday night, Raith Rovers will be hoping for home comforts from their next two fixtures, starting on Tuesday evening against Queen of the South.

Rovers now sit just inside the playoff positions in fourth place, two points behind Inverness Caledonian Thistle, but with fifth place Partick Thistle having played three games fewer, John McGlynn’s men know that wins will need to start coming soon if they’re to stay in the promotion picture.

To do that on Tuesday, they’ll need to do something they’ve failed to do so far this season, and get one over on Allan Johnston’s Queen of the South team.

The Doonhamers currently sit bottom of the second tier, after losing 2-0 to Dunfermline at the weekend, but they’ve taken four points from a possible six from the Kirkcaldy team so far.

Despite Rovers dominating the second half in the first meeting this term, an early Lee Connelly goal was enough to for all three points to head back down the road to Dumfries in September.

Rovers did manage to fight back from behind at Palmerston in November, after Max Johnston put the home side in front early in the second half, but Aidan Connolly managed to rescue a point with a little under 20 minutes remaining.

Queen of the South have the upper hand in this fixture in recent years, with four wins and three draws from the last ten meetings.

Tuesday night’s match referee will be Grant Irvine.
