MATCH PREVIEW - RAITH ROVERS (A)

PostedJuly 13, 2018

After our short series of friendly games we get into the serious stuff on Saturday when we face our League One neighbours Raith Rovers at Bayview Stadium, Methil with a 3pm kick off.

The reason for the game being switched up the Fife coast being Starks Park being fitted out with a new 3G surface with both the Rovers Betfred Cup home games being switched.

We of course met at the same stage of the competition last season when we went down 2-0 to Barry Smith's side with Lewis Vaughan and former Central Parker Liam Buchanan scoring.

It proved to be a disappointing end to the season for Rovers last season as they lost out on the League One title to Ayr on the last day before subsequently losing in the play offs to eventual winners Alloa.

The close season has seen Buchanan joined by a trio of former Cowden players from our Championship days - Robbie Thomson, Lewis Milne and Nat Wedderburn who arrived from Falkirk, Montrose and Dunfermline respectively.

One former Cowden man leaving Kirkcaldy in the summer was Greig Spence who returned to Alloa for a fourth spell.

Former Rovers men in the Cowden squad this season are David McGurn and Martin Scott.
