Raith Rovers face a trip to Ayr United at Somerset Park, Ayr 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 36 and win only 15 of the 70 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2008, with Raith Rovers inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Honest Men in a Scottish Division Two match.
