Looking to gain an early advantage in their Championship playoff showdown, Raith Rovers will welcome a resurgent Forfar to Stark Park on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, after playing out a 1-1 draw with Montrose over the weekend, Raith Rovers will be looking to refind some momentum heading into the playoffs. While they may have recorded just one victory in their last five outings and are looking for their first clean sheet since the start of March, John McGlynn’s side have continued to shine in the final third. Comfortably holding the best-attacking record in Scotland’s third-tier, one man to watch on Tuesday will be leading goalscorer and attacking talisman, Kevin Nisbet. Already bagging 30 League One goals this season, nine more than any other player, the 22-year-old has also now scored four goals in his last two appearances.

As for the visitors, after picking up a 3-2 win away at East Fife on their final League One matchup, Forfar’s impressive end to the season saw them manage to leapfrog Raith to a second place finish. Now winning their last three matches of the campaign and enjoying a four-match unbeaten run, they have also begun to show some improvements away from Station Park. Forfar have now recorded back-to-back victories on their travels having endured a five-match winless run on the road between February and April. With the last three matchups between the two sides seeing both teams find the net after 90 minutes, we’re backing a similar outcome on Tuesday night.
