History of the Partick Thistle v Raith Rovers fixture

Partick Th. are ready to welcome Raith Rovers to Firhill Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Jags are clearly on top, having won 38 and lost only 9 of the 61 games.

The previous match played between the two at Firhill Stadium was within the last three years, in April 2002, the The Jags carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Division One match.
