Match Preview

After the seemingly customary last minute winner on Wednesday evening against Arbroath, Raith Rovers head to Tannadice to face second placed Dundee United this Saturday, in Scotland’s biggest game of the weekend.

For much of the midweek encounter, it looked like Rovers would be drawing level on points with The Terrors, but Lewis Vaughan’s 95th minute winner edged them two points clear of Jim Goodwin’s side.

Raith are in exceptional form, and have now won six straight matches and are unbeaten in a dozen, but United are in impressive form themselves, still unbeaten in the league, and go into this one on the back of a ground out 1-0 win over Ayr United last weekend, with top scorer, and former Raith loanee Kai Fotheringham bagging his 10th goal in all competitions.

This will be the two sides second meeting this term, with the first ending in a one all draw at Stark’s Park back in October.

Lewis Vaughan had given the home side the lead in the 24th minute, but an equaliser from Louis Moult ensured the Taysiders headed back to Dundee with a share of the spoils.

If Rovers are to move further clear at the top of the table, they’ll need to win at Tannadice for the first time since a 2-1 victory back in November 1996, although admittedly, the sides haven’t met too often since that match 27 years ago.

Saturday’s match referee will be John Beaton.
