Footymad preview History of the Partick Thistle v Raith Rovers fixture

Raith Rovers face a trip to Partick Thistle at Firhill Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 42 and win only 11 of the 69 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in May 2011, with Partick Thistle running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Scottish Division One match.
