RAITH ROVERS may have been swept aside 5-0 by Rangers in their last meeting, but Andy Halliday is expecting a tough test from the Fifers when the Light Blues visit Starks Park on Saturday.
Rovers have been something of a surprise package this season, sitting fifth in the Championship table with 23 points and a game in hand on fourth-placed Morton who have the same number of points.
Rangers won 4-0 and 2-1 on their two visits there last season, but Halliday pointed to their recent result against Hibs as a warning for the rest of his teammates.
He explained to RangersTV.tv: “It will be a difficult place to go, although I’ve never played there myself. They have earned a lot of good points at home and ran Hibs really close there a few weeks ago.
“It’s just a case of going and doing what we’ve been trying to do and picking up the three points. That’s two wins in a row we’ve had now, so we need to try and get that momentum we had at the start of the season that saw us win so many games on the bounce.
“Thankfully, that’s two now, so hopefully there is another to come on Saturday.”
Halliday scored the fourth goal in the 4-0 win over Dumbarton last night and was named as Man of the Match in Saturday’s win over St Mirren, and the midfield star believes he is getting back to somewhere near his best.
He added: “I’m just enjoying playing for Rangers Football Club, and that’s what it’s all about for me. I’m privileged to play for this club and to have played so many minutes.
“The better we play and the more wins we get, the happier I am. It’s been going pretty well so far, although we had a couple of disappointing results recently, and maybe I’ve not been at my best myself which is always disappointing, but thankfully I found a bit of form and we’ve done well in these last two games.”
