Match Preview: Raith Rovers vs Queen’s Park

The Spiders travel to Kirkcaldy this afternoon for what is the first of four away games in the month of April, as the run in at top of the table intensifies.


“It’s a game we are all looking forward to and one which we know will be a very tough one. For us it’s an opportunity to bounce back quickly from the disappointment of last week’s defeat against Arbroath and also an opportunity to try and get back to the performance levels that we are capable of. Result wise last week was certainly a game we could have won given the chances we created and we need to make sure we look to do that again at Stark’s Park. We do however also need to be more fluent in our passing and to do that we need to be taking care of the ball when we have it.”

“At this stage in the season there will be nerves and emotion but it’s important that we put that aside and concentrate on the football and doing what we know we can be good at, passing and moving the ball around. We know that if we do that we can perform well and that leads to winning games.”

“We’ll be up against a very good Raith Rovers team, who like ourselves, like to pass and move the ball about, and that means it should have the makings of a very good game. Like us, they have some exciting players in their squad so our focus will also need to be on working hard against the ball, as well as being good on it.”

“I want us to be getting on the ball, express ourselves, make the right choices and put a smile on the fans faces because we are doing what we do best.”

“With Raith Rovers enjoying playing on the front foot it will certainly be a different type of game to some of what we have come up against in recent weeks where teams have dug in and made it difficult for us to break them down. It’s their home match and they, like us, will be chasing a win given their play-off aspirations. We know their quality and the fact that they have a lot to play for so we do need to be very wary of the threats they have.”

“I’m pleased to have Jack Thomson and Lee Kilday back fit and available again and we may look to make a couple of changes to freshen things up as we look to get that quick reaction we need and want. In the main we have always bounced back quickly this season and that’s exactly what we want to do this afternoon.”
