Match Preview:

It’ll now take a sudden and unexpected loss of form from Ayr United for Raith Rovers to be able to win the League One title, after last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Arbroath saw them slide five points behind the Honest Men with just three games remaining.

However, while they’re heavily reliant on favours from others, they’ll also need to win their trio of fixtures to stand any chance, starting with this Saturday’s home tie with Queen’s Park.

Gus MacPherson’s team are currently bottom of the third tier table, and while Forfar look unassailable in eighth place, seven points clear of the Hampden side, only goal difference separates them from Albion Rovers, who currently reside in the relegation playoff spot.

Rovers have a one hundred percent record against Queen’s Park this term, and if they win at the weekend, it’ll be the second side they’ve completed a clean sweep over, after East Fife.

The first match at the national stadium in September was a fairly comfortable affair, although the 5-0 scoreline was a little harsh on the home side.

Rovers were two up within seven minutes, after goals from Liam Buchanan and Lewis Vaughan, while second half efforts from Dario Zanatta, Bobby Barr and Jason Thomson completed the scoring.

It was a far tighter affair at Stark’s Park in February, as Rovers eventually made the breakthrough during the second period, with Zanatta and Thomson scoring within a few minutes of each other in a 2-0 win.

Rovers made another whirlwind start at Hampden Park in February, leading 3-0 after half-an-hour, with goals from Euan Murray, Willis Furtado and Buchanan, but a goal from Aidan Keena completed the scoring in a 3-1 away win.

It’s been just over ten years since Raith last lost to Queen’s Park, a 1-0 defeat at Stark’s Park in March 2008. It was a season where Raith would finish third behind Airdrie and champions Ross County, before losing to the Diamonds in the playoffs.

Since then, Rovers have won eight straight matches against the Spiders, conceding just twice in the process.

Saturday’s match referee will be Alan Newlands.
