Apart a surprisngly draw on field of leader Arbroath, only other four points in last eight rounds for third from bottom Stranraer arrived against the two bottom table teams, a draw against Stenhousemuir and a win with Brechin.
Today hosts have great problems to fill the bench and two youngsters are called, with six first teamers out: second scorer Anderson ( midf. 18+4 5g) has flu, McDonald ( midf. 18+1) is suspended, Crossan ( att.13+2 2g), McGowan ( def.7+1 1g), Lamont ( midf.7+9), I. Smith ( att.4+8) are injuried.
Raith is second on table but in downtrend, this seems right match for them to return to win also if 14 points of difference with leader Arbroath seems very hard to fill and join direct promotion place.
Guests without third scorer Vaughan ( 6g), second away match for them after midweek one ( but also hosts played in midweek), should be the only problem for this bet.
