Raith Rovers Home - Preview

PostedFebruary 22, 2013


After losing at Livingston last weekend Colin Cameron will be looking to get back to winning ways when we host Raith Rovers in the final home Fife derby game of the season at Central Park on Saturday, kick off 3 p.m.
In the two previous meetings with the Rovers this season we have drawn both games despite behind two goals ahead three times in the encounters!
Back in October goals from Kyle Miller and Jamie Stevenson had us two goals up at Central Park but goals from Brian Graham and Greig Spence levelled the score at the interval.
Lewis Coult then came off the bench to put us ahead 4-2 with a quick brace, before Pat Clarke and Simon Mensing with a 94th minute leveller gave the Rovers a point.
It felt like a case of “Groundhog Day” as we closed 2012 at Starks Park. Lewis Coult and Stevenson with a penalty had us two up at the break, but two early goals at the start of the second half from Dougie Hill and young Spence saw another draw.
Our last two home games against Falkirk and Dunfermline saw us score eight goals as we earned maximum points.
Our home league record so far this season is
Played 11 Won 3 Drawn 5 Lost 3 Goals For 20 Goals Against 20 Points 14.
The Rovers currently sit two places above us in sixth place in the Irn Bru First Division.
The Kirkcaldy side have only won two away league games this season at Falkirk in August and at Hamilton on 27th October.
Since then they have played five games on the road drawing at Airdrie and losing at Partick, Dunfermline, Livingston and Morton.
Rovers away record so far this season is
Played 10 Won 2 Drawn 2 Lost 6 Goals For 11 Goals Against 15 Points 10.
Brian Graham has scored 21 league and cup goals for the Rovers with 12 of them coming in the league.
Taking charge of the match is Brian Colvin who will be assisted by Stuart McMillan and David McKenzie.
