Match Preview:

Raith Rovers go head-to-head with St. Mirren this Wednesday, in a vital six-pointer at the bottom of the Championship.

Just a few short weeks ago, St. Mirren seemed almost certain to be facing relegation to the third tier of Scottish football, but a huge overhaul of their playing squad during the January transfer window, has prompted a significant turnaround in their fortunes.

Just one defeat in eight league and cup games up until the weekend’s fixture against Celtic, has seen the Buddies close the gap between themselves and Ayr United to just five points, while a win at Stark’s Park would see them move just three behind John Hughes men with a game in hand.

That recent good run has also taken them to the final of the Irn Bru Cup, where they’ll face Dundee United, and the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup, where they lost out to Celtic on Sunday.

Raith and St Mirren have met twice already this term, with the sides clocking up a win apiece.

A Declan McManus brace and a strike from Ross Callachan sealed a 3-1 win for Rovers back in August, but St. Mirren came out in top in December, when a Lewis Morgan goal was enough for all three points to stay in Paisley.

Raith Rovers hold a slight advantage in the most recent fixtures, with five wins and a draw from the last ten league meetings.

Wednesday’s match referee will be Crawford Allan.
