Raith Rovers boss John Hughes has revealed he will hand teamtalk duties over to his kitman for this weekend’s clash against Ayr United.
Raith saw their survival hopes take a serious battering last week as they were thumped 5-0 by fellow relegation candidates St Mirren.
That result evoked a furious reaction from Hughes after the final whistle, with his team looking more and more likely to be playing in League One next term.
And Hughes was equally as animated this afternoon, when he revealed he would leave it to the team’s kitman to inspire the players before the Ayr game on Saturday:

Raith go into the game knowing they need all three points to avoid the relegation play-offs while also hoping champions Hibs can inflict a defeat on Jack Ross’ St Mirren.
Either way, we can surely expect a passionate response from the Raith players with the sort of team talk Hughes is promising in the video above.
