Although the Kirkcaldy team lost 2-1 at home to Queen’s Park on Saturday to slip second in the table below Dundee United on goal difference having played a game more, Ian Murray’s squad remain well in the hunt with 15 fixtures to play and currently enjoy an eight-point advantage over third-placed Partick Thistle.

Twenty-five-year-old Pole Dabrowski, who joined Rovers last summer after leaving Hibernian, said: "Maybe some of the boys were surprised pre-season when I said we'd win the league but that's my mentality.

"Some of them were laughing so I said: 'Let's see how it goes'. Right now they start believing it as well and I'm very happy I could bring that belief and faith to some of them.

"I'm a big believer we can win the league as we have faced Dundee United twice and we have shown we can compete against them and we were even the better team during those two games.

"We need to keep the momentum going, keep doing what we're doing and we have a big chance to do it.

"Definitely it will be a very good title race to follow. We will go for it.

"Anything is possible in this league so we need to make sure it's not just Dundee United we watch.

"We need to focus on Partick as well. Last season they managed to get to the final of the play-offs and they almost got promoted.

"It went to a penalty shootout and they were so close to doing it.

"We will definitely try to get there as well. But what we need to do is keep winning and keep getting points because we have created such a big gap compared to the other teams.

"We still have a decent gap to Partick so we are still quite calm. We just need to keep performing.”

Dabrowski has missed Raith’s last two games through injury but hopes to be fit to face Livingston away in the Scottish Cup fourth round this Saturday.
