Match Preview:

Raith Rovers head to Ibrox on Sunday afternoon, looking for their first league victory at the stadium since 1959. However, they also go there looking for their second consecutive win over Rangers at the venue, after their 2-1 win Scottish Cup triumph in Govan in February.

Both teams go into the match on the back of poor results in midweek. Raith lost at home to Cowdenbeath 3-1, after a hat-trick from Colin Nish sealed a vital three points for the Blue Brazil, while Mark Stewart grabbed a late consolation for Rovers.

Rangers on the other hand went down 3-0 to Queen of the South at Palmerston Park on Thursday, when goals from Derek Lyle, a Lee Wallace own-goal, and Gavin Reilly, condemned Rangers to their heaviest ever defeat against the Doonhamers.

Both results had huge repercussions at both ends of the Championship table. Cowdenbeath now reside in eighth place, five points clear of Alloa Athletic and eight clear of bottom club Livingston, although both clubs have played fewer games than Jimmy Nicholl’s side.

In the promotion play-off spots, Hibernian are now above Rangers on goal difference in second place, while Queen of the South now sit above Falkirk in fourth, despite playing a game fewer than the Bairns. Perhaps crucially however, Queen of the South face Falkirk this weekend.

As you would expect, Raith face a tough ask this Sunday, against a side that have taken nine points from nine against Rovers this season. Rangers comfortably won the first two league fixtures, although their last encounter at Stark’s Park was a tighter affair. Andy Murdoch and Kris Boyd put Rangers 2-0 ahead, and although a Ryan Conroy goal with 20 minutes remaining reduced the arrears, Rangers saw the remainder of the game out.

That result was Rangers fifth straight league win over the Kirkcaldy club, and in the most recent league meetings, Stuart McCall’s side have won eight and drawn two of the last ten encounters.

Sunday afternoon’s referee will be Stephen Finnie.
