Raith Rovers claimed their place in the play-offs following a 3-2 aggregate victory over Forfar Athletic. 

 

John McGlynn’s side finished their League One campaign in 3rd place despite enduring some difficult results over the past few weeks. 

While the third-tier outfit only lost one of their last seven games, at the same time they only managed two victories. 

 

Queen of the South, meanwhile, will be hoping to preserve their Championship status when they take on Raith. 

 

The team passed the first test when they claimed a 6-2 aggregate win over Montrose in the semi-final. 

 

The one major worry for Gary Naysmith’s men is that they come into this game with poor form under their belt. Two wins in nine games is exactly the reason why the Dumfries outfit finds itself in this predicament. 

 

The betting recommendation in this game is to back Raith Rovers. While the Kirkcaldy side may come from a lower division, it’s clear from statistics that Queen of the South struggle playing on the road. 

 

What’s more, the visitors haven’t beaten Raith away from home since 2014 – they’ve had five attempts since then to do it.
