MORTON playmaker Craig McGuffie hopes to haunt another of his former employers when he faces his old side Raith Rovers this Saturday.

The 22-year-old savoured Ton's dramatic 3-2 comeback win against former club Ayr United at the weekend.

McGuffie spent six months on loan at Stark's Park in 2018-19, scoring three goals in 15 games under John McGlynn in Kirkaldy and he wants to continue his good record against his old clubs.

The midfielder knows Ton are in for a tough afternoon against the Championship new boys - but he is confident they have enough quality to see off the Stark's Park side.

He told the Tele: “I’m looking forward to going back up to Raith because I had six months there on loan not too long ago and I really enjoyed it.

“They’ve got a good Astroturf park and that will suit us I think, everyone saw how well we did down at Queen of the South at the back end of last season.

“It’ll suit me as well, I like to play on good surfaces like that, but we’ll be going there with the intention of coming away with three points and keeping our good form going for as long as we possibly can.

"I’ve noticed that they’ve had a good start and there are no easy games in this league. I know it sounds a bit cliché but everybody is so evenly matched.

“They’ve got a good core of players who’ve all been there for a while, quite similar to ourselves, and they’ve adapted to the league well.

“They’ve started really well and scored a lot of goals and obviously have their danger men, but we’ve been defensively quite sound for the most part up until this point.

“It’ll be a tough test but I’m confident that we’ll be able to keep up our good form and go into the Betfred Cup game next week on a high.”

McGuffie is pleased with the promising start Ton have made as they sit in fourth place after three games, level on points with big spending Hearts and just one behind this weekend’s opponents.

He said: “We’ve started well and I think the fact that we’ve gotten six points out of a possible nine so far is really positive.

“We’re sitting in the play-off spots just now and I mean, if we could stay there it would be ideal although we need to take these games one at a time.

“I think even in the game that we’ve lost – we’ve come away disappointed because we’ve played that well and felt we should’ve come away with more.

“You’ve then had the game on Saturday which was a bit mental in the way we came back.

“It felt absolutely amazing to get the win and bounce back in that manner.

“I’ve had a wee laugh with the boys, saying that I’m unbeaten in that fixture over the last couple of seasons, obviously winning the first two games and then since I’ve come here to Morton, we’ve beat them every time, so hopefully that can continue."
