Raith Rovers v Dumbarton betting preview
Location: Starks Park.
Date: 26th September 2015.
I have never tried to hide my admiration for the Raith Rovers’ manager, Ray McKinnon. As manager of Brechin for three years he guided them to 4th and 3rd in Scottish League One.
That might not seem like a massive achievement but since he has left Brechin have been rooted to the bottom of the league with just one win.
His start at Starks Park has been exceptional. Raith are in 4th place level on points with Hibs and just a win away from 2nd place.
On Wednesday night they had the unenviable task of trying to overcome Celtic at Celtic Park. They acquitted themselves very well by all accounts and avoided a heavy beating.
Their home form in particular has been a joy. They are yet to concede a league goal at home with only Hamilton Accies managing to breach their defence in the league cup. Raith still managed to win the game.
McKinnon is gaining a reputation for being tactically astute. Fans are already praising his substitutions as being “game changing”. His teams are organised defensively as exhibited at Celtic Park and the fans are loving life at the moment.
Many have been hailing his signings too saying that the team this year is way above the quality of last year’s team.
Dumbarton, for their part, have hit a real slump after the surprising victories over Hibs and Saint Mirren in the first two league games of the season.
Losing out to League 2 sides in both cups was disappointing but Stevie Aitken will be more concerned with their league form.
The last 5 matches have seen just 1 point garnered and they have problems up front with just 2 goals to their credit from their last 6 games. Even if one of them did come against Rangers they will need to improve to breakthrough a stubborn Raith Rovers rearguard.
That’s why there is one stand out bet for this Raith Rovers v Dumbarton betting preview that is too irresistible to refuse.
