Matthews is a graduate of the Raith Rovers Academy who signed a two-year apprenticeship in May 2013, making his first team debut as a second half sub in the friendly against Sheffield United in July 2013. He made his full first team start against Dumbarton in the last league game of 2014-15, being awarded the Malcom Szpera award for Endeavour at the Supporters’ Club Awards. He signed a new two-year contract in May 2015.
Matthews scored his first senior Rovers goal in the first league game of the 2016-17 season on 6th August 2016 in a 2-0 win at Somerset Park against Ayr United. Having established himself in the team in 2016-17, he was rewarded with an extended contract through to the summer of 2019, and then signed on for an additional season at the end of that deal.
Ross was one of the first players retained, from the title winning League 1 squad, for the current season.

He extended his contract with the Rovers to the end of season 2023-24 on 3rd February 2021.
