Match Preview: Raith Rovers (H)

It’s our final home match of the season this weekend as we welcome the visit of Raith Rovers to Lanarkshire. Kick-off 3:00pm. 


Head Coach Stuart Taylor has admitted that his squad are carrying some niggles after their 1-0 victory over Morton last week. 

Speaking on the squad, he said: “Scotty (Martin) hasn’t trained. I don’t see him being back for the next two games.”

However, the 47-year-old was more optimistic on the availability of Brian Easton and Jamie Hamilton. 

He said: “Jamie hasn’t trained but will hopefully take part in training today. Brian Easton hasn’t trained but he should be fine to try something today.”


Our last match against Raith Rovers ended in a narrow 0-0 draw as we visited Stark’s Park in February, 


Accies come into the clash on the back of an impressive 1-0 victory in our last match against Morton. 

Speaking on the game, Taylor is aiming to end the season strongly. 

He said: “There is everything to play for in this match. We want to win because three points takes us closer to Raith Rovers and head to Inverness on the back of two good victories.

“We have great pride in what we do as a group and we want to give the supporters something to cheer about in the match.”


Looking ahead to Saturday’s clash, Head Coach Stuart Taylor stated:

“We know it is going to be a good game to watch. Both sides like to get the ball down and play football so for the neutral it’ll be a good one.”
