Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be looking for their seventh straight win this coming Saturday, when they travel to Hampden to take on Queen’s Park.

Both teams are going into the game on the back of good wins, with Raith prevailing over Ayr United in their top-of-the-table joust, while Queen’s sealed a 1-0 win at Methil against East Fife.

That victory for Gus McPherson’s side was their first win of the campaign, and it was enough to lift them over Forfar Athletic and into ninth spot, leaving them writhing striking distance of East Fife.

That win brought to an end a run of five games without one, with their only previous victories to date, coming  against Edinburgh City and Berwick Rangers in the League Cup.

It’s been some time since these two clubs have faced each other in a league fixture, with Raith winning all four of the encounters in the 2008/09 season, although the two have met on cup duty far more recently.

Back in 2013, Rovers progressed to the second round of the League Cup, after goals from Joe Cardle, Gordon Smith, Greig Spence, Lewis Vaughan and a double from Calum Elliot handed Raith a 6-0 win.

There hasn’t been a drawn match between these two sides since the 1986/87 season, a run of 11 fixtures, and Rovers have held the upper hand since then, with seven wins and three defeats in the last ten meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be John McKendrick.
