FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing appears to be going right for the The Doonhamers out on the road recently, yet the Madmen can see a turn around in fortunes as they battle to a victory in a closely fought contest at Raith Rovers. Away win

Sequence statistics:
Raith RoversLatest 2 games ended in defeat.
Not won in the 2 most recent games.
Queen o.t.S.Undefeated in last 4 away games.
5 games since last defeat.


Queens will be without Rocco Quinn,Jamie Adams and David Hutton through injury also Bob Harris and Marc McCausland are suspended. Steve McKenna returns but it will be a patched up Queens side that takes the field at Kirkcaldy. Queens will be going all out to give themselves a chance of finishing second but it will be hard graft and I'm going for another scoring draw.
