Raith Rovers still have the opportunity to claim runner-up spot. With no better than fourth secure, Montrose have nothing to play for other than pride.

Off the back of a narrow defeat to Forfar, we don't have momentum to carry forward. It would be great to finish the league campaign with a win but not at the cost of diminishing our playoff hopes through injuries.

Interesting dilemma for SP. Definitely a plus to have the luxury of trying some different options ahead of the playoff games.

What a contrast to last season's nail-biter match!

How will super silky samba Rovers cope with the hatchet men cloggers of Montrose? All this on a terrible pitch. It would be good for us to get a bit of momentum going into the playoffs so I would try all out to get the win. SP has a habit of chopping and changing the team anyway, so I don't know if he'll 'rest' players

Would be very happy to see McGlynn rest a few players for the playoffs

He might rest a couple. There’s not a hope In hell that he’ll rest Nisbet though.

I notice we never played any players returning from injury in the Fife Cup last night. Therefore, I would imagine the likes of Duggan, Wedderburn, Murray and Gillespie will get 90 minutes under their belts on Saturday.

I would like to see some key players rested but it could be argued aside from Nisbet all our key players are either injured or returning from injury and needing minutes. 

The line up is anyone’s guess but you could really say the same for the play off against Forfar. I’ve mentioned it before but due to the disruption with injuries I have no idea what our first choice side is. I would say McGlynn’s first choice defence, rightly or wrongly, is Murray, Davo, Bene and Crane with Buchanan and Nisbet the choices upfront. However, the midfield is a bit of a lottery in terms of personnel and formation.

At least you’re not riled up about it.

I am utterly, utterly seething about this outrageous slur against my club. I am unable to function today due to being soooo riled up.

Lyness

 

Watson Mckay Bene Crane

 

Matthews Barjonas Wedderburn

 

Duggan Gullan

 

Rest Nesbit, Gillespie and Murray.

 

Bring on Buchanan later on in the game. He was decent against Brechin but I’m not the biggest fan of him.

 

Playing Watson is properly a dodgy idea, but to me this game doesn’t mean much and he always used to get played under Smith so give him a shot to boost his confidence.

 

Also give Bowie more game time later on in the game, as he seems lively when coming off from the bench.

I'm all for resting players but I'd still rather we started with 11 players on the pitch....

I’ve not typed McGuffie.

Duggan in the middle with Gullan and McGuffie out on the wings.

That’s why I will never be involved with football further than being a rovers fan...

Would be ludicrous to rest Nisbet going for the tartan boot and firing on all cylinders, just our luck he'll get injured though going in for a 50/50 in the 94th minute with the game already seen out.

Not sure his girl friend/ partner would appreciate him doing  that.

We can sub him after he’s got his hat trick in the 65th min.

Do Mo fans have any preferences for who they want in that 9th spot at FT on Saturday?

Have to admit Alloa would be the ones i'd want least and not just because of Rovers recent history with them. I think for me they've obviously had 9th as a possibility from the start of the season, have not been trying and failing to play expansive football like some around them and probably the team least likely to be on the mat, in their heads if they did finish 9th.

If we went up then I'd rather Alloa were there. Another 2 part time teams in the league would help us avoid doing a Brechin.

Having said that QotS can be done by train on the Saturday but it's a long day. So The Jags would be grand for me. Falkirk can't see them getting anything on Saturday.

It's going to be Alloa i think anyway. Easy enough away day.
