Fifth-placed Peterhead meet second-top Raith Rovers but just one point separates the teams going into the Kirkcaldy clash.

The Blue Toon go for a third straight win in League 1 after back-to-back victories over Forfar and Stranraer.

But they will do so without Rory McAllister, who is suspended following his dismissal at Stair Park last time out.

Raith came out on top when the sides met in July.  That was in the Betfred Cup as John McGlynn’s team notched a 3-1 win to end Peterhead’s progression hopes.

Jamie Stevenson and Derek Lyle are set to return to the squad this weekend following injury lay-offs while David Ferguson, signed recently following his release from Ayr, could also feature.

The trio played in a bounce match last Friday against Brechin, which ended 1-1 after Ben Armour netted for the Blue Toon.
