Match Preview:

After a last-gasp come-from-behind victory over East Fife last weekend, Rovers are back on their travels this Saturday, as they face Stenhousemuir at Ochilview.

The Warriors currently sit bottom of League One, but they’ve given themselves a fighting chance of staying in the division, after last week’s 2-1 win at Dumbarton.

That result now sees them just two points behind ninth place Stranraer, and three behind Brechin, who sit one place higher.

Although Stenny had lost their two games prior to last weekend’s victory, they’ve actually been in a pretty rich vein of form, losing just three times in their last 10 league outings, a sequence which has seen them taking points off four of the top six sides in the division, including a win at Gayfield against Arbroath.

This will be the two teams fourth meeting this term, with Raith taking nine points from nine so far.

Their first meeting was in August, when a brace from Kevin Nisbet was enough to seal all three points in a 2-0 win.

It was a two goal margin of victory when the two met at Ochilview in November too, with goals coming from Callum Crane and a double from Daniel Armstrong sealing a 3-1 win.

The most recent meeting was in January, when Rovers had five different goal scorers in a 5-1 win, with Iain Davidson, Grant Gillespie, Euan Murray, Lewis Vaughan and Chris Duggan all wading in, in what was a one sided match.

History suggests that we will get a winner on the day, with the last draw between these sides coming back in 1984, with a 1-1 draw at Ochilview in the old Second Division.

Rovers have an excellent record in this fixture, with eight wins and two defeats from the last ten meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Duncan.
