Match Preview

After a two week break following on from that 5-0 win over Arbroath, Raith Rovers will face off against Partick Thistle in the Premiership semi-final playoff, with the first leg on Tuesday evening at Firhill. 

Thistle made it through after a predictably tight affair against Airdrie in the quarter final, with Brian Graham’s brace in the second leg eventually sending Kris Doolan’s men through with a 4-3 aggregate win. 

This will be the second time that Rovers have reached this stage of the playoffs, and they’ll be looking for a better outcome this time around than the one they encountered three years ago against Dundee. 

A 3-0 defeat in the home leg at Stark’s Park all but wrapped the tie up for the Dens Park side after 90 minutes, and while Rovers did register a 1-0 win at Dens Park, it was Dundee who got the opportunity to face Kilmarnock in the final, and it’s one they took with both hands, winning 4-2 on aggregate. 

Unlike their other potential semi-final opponent, Rovers do have a good record against Partick Thistle this season, with two wins and two draws from the four meetings. 

The season began with a 2-2 draw at Firhill, with Rovers bouncing back from two goals down to earn a point, thanks to goals from Dylan Easton and Kieran Mitchell. 

Rovers won the first encounter in December 4-3, thanks to more late goals from Callum Smith and Sam Stanton, in a topsy turvy encounter that was one of the games of the season at Stark’s Park. 

Rovers also came out on top at Firhill in March, with Euan Murray’s header enough to seal all three points, while the last meeting in April was a somewhat low key 0-0 draw. 

The second leg of this one will be played on Friday evening at Stark’s Park, with the winner facing a two leg final against either Ross County or St Johnstone the following week. 

Tuesday evening’s match referee will be Chris Graham. 

Head-To-Head Record:

Partick Thistle wins: 70

Raith Rovers wins: 53

Draws: 41
