 They used to be sh!te, but now they're alright

 

Inverness face a treacherous trip to the home of the new, improved version of Raith Rovers. This would have been a game where we might have expected to pick up at least a point over the last twenty odd years. However, they are more resillient of late and testament to that is our two meetings this season when late goals saw Rovers snatch all six points from Inverness who deserved more from both games.

Raith broke the mold back in September when they won for the first time in 23 years:  Record Breakers

Never had there been a better time for Raith Rovers to break the Caley Jags hoodoo! Inverness, without a win in their last eight games, and Billy Dodds and the management team under fire. A 23 year run of games without a win for Raith Rovers was brought to an end today when Jamie Gullan smashed home from 15 yards with five minutes left. It was harsh on Inverness who dominated for long spells earlier in the game, but it leaves the management with some tough decisions to make. There will be dancing on the streets of Raith tonight!

And in December:  Just Like Buses

None for 23 years then two in a row as Raith came from behind to win with a time added on penalty converted by Jamie Gullan. Billy Mckay had opened the scoring with a header on the hour but a late surge by Rovers won it. Lewis Vaughan four minutes from the end then the penalty to take the win at the death scored by Jamie Gullan. We should have had a penalty of our own after that, but Mr Williams chose to ignore it. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, and that one hurt.

I didn’t know Raith had picked up Rudden. That increases my nervousness but, for reasons I don’t understand so can’t explain, I think we will get at least a point tomorrow.

With all our new defenders I will be expecting a clean sheet and hoping to score a goal to get 3 points!  I will have my ear to the radio as us older guys say :wink:

Hope its more about three at the back with more of a penchant to play out quicker and more forward thinking passes - Two wing backs with a look to go forward - a ball playing holding midfielder - two interchanging number 10's and two forwards holding a high line. I would suggest that we have that ?

Half time: Raith 1-3 ICT.

Accodding to the BBC, 5 attempts, 4 on target and, believe it or not, 3 of our attempts were shots from outside the box.

What a turnaround after going behind. Will be interesting to hear from those at the game how we’ve lined up and how the new players are doing but an encouraging score line.

Now we need to get the job done and win all three points.
