Match Preview:

Raith Rovers travel to Hampden this Saturday, for the third of their three successive away league matches.

The previous two have only produced one point for Raith, and the need for three points this time around has become even greater, with Ayr now sitting top of the table by a single point, with Rovers having played a game fewer.

The Spiders go into the match with no wins in five, with their last win coming at Station Park two days before Christmas, with a 3-0 win over Forfar Athletic.

That sequence has seen Gus MacPherson’s team slip to the bottom of the table, three points behind Jim Weir’s Loons.

Raith should take confidence from Queen’s sketchy home form, with only Albion Rovers picking up fewer points on their home turf, while their attack has produced the fewest goals in the league this term.

Raith have won both previous meetings this season, with the first a 5-0 win in September, with goals from Liam Buchanan, Lewis Vaughan, Dario Zanatta, Bobby Barr and Jason Thomson sealing a comfortable win.

The next fixture in November was slightly less straightforward, although second-half strikes from Zanatta and Greig Spence eventually saw Rovers home.

Raith Rovers have won their last seven matches against the Spiders, with their last defeat coming in a Second Division match back in 2008. As a consequence, their most recent record against Queen’s Park is an impressive one, winning eight and losing two of their last ten meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Graham Beaton.
