Inverness CT vs Raith Rovers Match Preview
Inverness CT were held to a goalless draw at Peterhead and saw the rivals bag the bonus point on penalties, ending their seven-match unbeaten streak seen through the pre-season and now hosting Raith Rovers for their League Cup clash looking to bounce quickly.
Caley Thistle have been scoring (and conceding) goals on the regular along the way but proved themselves tough nut in front of the home fans, where they beat St Johnstone (3-1) just last week. John Robertson will now hope his men will be able to show it off once again and we don’t feel the League One rivals will be the same sort of a challenge either.
Indeed, Raith Rovers have seen a very comfortable 0-3 home loss to Dundee on Matchday 1 and failed to build on a very solid pre-season streak of their own, where they beat Stirling Albion (1-0), Hamilton Academical (3-2), Spartans (2-0), and Cowdenbeath (2-1) since late June.
Rovers have struggled to turn clashes their way on the road, though, and this has proven costly in the promotion play-offs last term as well. They’ve struggled to keep it together at the back and regularly let in goals, which will surely be a problem at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium, if John McGlynn can’t find a cure on Saturday already.
We don’t feel he can and we’ll thus back Inverness CT to bag all three points on the day, where a Home win has seen like buying money for old rope by many in the know and comes at 4/7 with William Hill with the obvious difference in depth of quality.
Still, Raith Rovers have been scoring goals and will hope they can now rediscover their form in the final third, promising a strong challenge and an exciting contest here. We’ll thus also go for goals and back Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 11/20 with MansionBet.
