Very quiet on here aint it ?!!


Recommended Posts

We really need a win on Friday, not just for our position but to show Raith that normal service has resumed, which is an important physiological statement for the inevitable meetings next season again.

With Dunfermline & Morton still to play, its very much now a battle to get up the table and be 'best of the rest' since the play-off places are essentially decided.

The motivation is very high for us.  Primarily, of course, to stay out of the relegation play-offs, but also to get as high up the league as possible.  It is still quite possible to end up 5th which would give us £50K more in prize money than finishing 8th.  We need all the pennies we can get.  It is worth noting that the prize money of £250K is less than a quarter of the prize money Livingston look set to "win" by coming bottom of the Premiership.  

Raith are guaranteed at least 2nd spot but seem to have blown their chances of the title.  But they have to believe they have a chance until Dundee Utd prove they don't.  I would therefore suspect that Raith will not be resting players with the play-offs in mind and will, instead, be focussed on getting the win they need to stay with a chance of the title.  Psychologically though, the fact that they have dropped so many points recently must affect them and as a result, I actually have a good feeling about this one.

Where's yer paragraph for the preview...

It would not surprise me that Dunc will go for the same starting X1 as Hampden. That has positives, maybes and negatives. Playing the same 5 at the back will provide the stability required and hopefully another shut out. I can see this allowing Harper to be more of a wing back but Kerr is not really that type of player. Anderson and Longstaff ran and ran and tackled and tackled. But they are stuck in the middle of the park and with only Samuel as the forward option. Starting Doran and Billy is risky. Both can produce something different, especially from free kick positions, but they need to support Samuel more. That's why I would play Doran alternating wide right and left. Billy did have a couple of chances at Hampden but I would play him closer to Samuel. As for the Tinkerville Taz then same again please. He will not give the Raif defence any breathing space and he is a cert to win free kicks. And with Billy ploughing likewise for an hour both may get more clear cut opportunities. What we can't allow to happen is giving away an early goal. Raif at home is a far more difficult task than the Spiders away. But I reckon Dunc and his dogs of War will be howling at the end of 90 minutes AND I would take a point if offered now 👍

Inevitable meetings next season? We'll be in different leagues then.

You are underestimating how ***** the Championship is if you think Raith have any chance of winning the play-offs

Aye County were jammy last year but I think they will see off Raith if that’s how it works out.

I normally enjoy Friday night games, and I really hope tomorrow’s will be no different.

A win will help us greatly, and add to the pressure on Queens Park, who have a difficult game at Dunfermline on Saturday.

However, Queens Park travel to play Arbroath next weekend, so we have to assume they will pick up points there.

We blew our good run against Raith earlier in the season, but had a great win in Kirkcaldy when we last played them.

Now is the time to continue our winning run and get ourselves looking up rather than down.

I’m nervous though, given our poor home form.

Never shite. Your efforts are appreciated down here and far more interesting than a Big Dunc video interview. 😉

Looks like Big Dunc has had the desired effect in getting Arbroath fired up. Excellent psychology. Hope are lads are ready for the fight tonight.

Perhaps a bit obvious what he's trying to do - hope it doesn't backfire on us!

Although, to be fair to Dunc, he's put Arbroath in a very awkward position! 😂

Unless Arbroath decide to screw him/us over by laying down.  Not like they have anything to lose either way.

Everyone is saving their excitement to get past this next game fully aware of the stats this is a stick on goalless draw, knowing final game of the season it'll finally all click and we open the doors to 'total football' putting 6 past Morton.............all to be undermined by calls of it being a 'dead rubber' and Morton players had already mentally packed for their all-inclusives to Turkey
