Looking to pick up an early advantage and move one step closer to booking a Championship return, Raith Rovers will welcome Queen of the South to Stark’s Park on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, after coming past Forfar over two legs last week, it has been a very successful end to the year for Raith Rovers. Unbeaten in their last five and yet to taste defeat since the middle of March, John McGlynn’s side have also won six of their last seven at Stark Park. One man who has really spearheaded Raith’s promotion push this season has been leading goalscorer and Player of the Season, Kevin Nisbet. Enjoying a stellar year in the third-tier, the 22-year-old bagged 30 goals this season and also found the net in both fixtures against Forfar last week. With six strikes in his last four appearances, Nisbet should be confident of extending that tally in midweek.

As for the visitors, while Raith might be enjoying a bright end to the year, the same cannot be said for a struggling Queen of the South. Ending their Championship campaign down in ninth, it will be their continued struggles on the road giving Gary Naysmith the biggest headache. Losing their last four matches away from Palmerston Park, including a 2-1 defeat at League One Montrose last week, QOS have remarkably lost nine of their last 10 matches outside of Dumfries, a run that stems back to the middle of January. With the visitors also failing to record a single clean sheet on the road in 2019, we’re backing Nisbet to enjoy another successful afternoon in the final third.
