Match Preview:

Raith Rovers will be looking for their third consecutive win this Saturday, as they start the second quarter of their league campaign.

Last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Arbroath lifted them five points clear at the top of the table, after Ayr United drew 2-2 with Airdrieonians, and Barry Smith’s side will be hoping they can extend that further, with a win at Stair Park against Stranraer.

It’ll be their first trip to the venue since 2009, when a 3-0 win for the away side condemned Stranraer to relegation to the fourth tier, after goals from Iain Williamson, Robert Sloan and Steven Hislop.

There doesn’t seem to be too much prospect of Steve Farrell’s side being dragged into trouble this term, however with the Blues sitting sixth in the table, just one point behind the playoff spots, after last weekend’s 2-0 win over Alloa Athletic.

This will be the sides second meeting this term, with Rovers running out 3-0 winners in August, with Lewis Vaughan grabbing a brace and Greig Spence scoring the other.

Since then, however, Stranraer have lost just three times in ten matches, with defeats coming against Ayr United, Arbroath and Dumbarton in the Irn Bru Cup.

Raith have a good record against Stranraer, with seven wins and two draws from the last ten meetings.

Saturday’s match referee will be Gavin Ross.
