Queen Of The South
Queen Of The South will be wanting a better result here following a 2-1 Championship loss in their previous game against Ayr United.
The only name on the scoresheet from Queen Of The South was Stephen Dobbie (56'). Michael Miller (13', 18') scored for Ayr United.
The Doonhamers have been conceding pretty frequently lately, but they have also found ways to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last 6 matches, The Doonhamers have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also managing to get on the scoresheet in 5 of those games.
Their prior results show that Queen Of The South:
- have not lost a league tie with Raith Rovers in their previous 2 matches.
- are without a home win in the past 5 league matches. Their fans aren’t happy.
Raith Rovers will go into this meeting following a 3-0 Championship win versus Arbroath in their last fixture.
For Raith Rovers, the scorers were Dan Armstrong (31'), Reghan Tumilty (36') and Regan Hendry (44').
Looking at their form, and Raith Rovers have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals overall. Defensively, The Rovers could really do with shoring things up. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, though.
Their past results show that Raith Rovers:
- haven’t beaten Queen Of The South in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
- have not won away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.
