Raith Rovers opening league fixtures over the past 10 years

Raith Rovers will be hoping to maintain an impressive record when they begin their League One campaign at Dumbarton on Saturday.

From their last 10 opening league games there has been just one defeat with six wins, and three draws.

A first-half goal from Liam Buchanan was cancelled out early in the second period by ex-Raith winger, Grant Anderson, who is now back at the Kirkcaldy club for his second spell.
