Thank you.

Since my post I have located four fixtures in this period for which I can't find the result.

1971 August 2nd Monday, Raith Rovers v Barnsley
1971 August 7th Saturday, Barrow v Clydebank
1971 August 9th Monday, Ayr United v Coventry City
1971 August 9th Monday, Chesterfield v Raith Rovers

Could anyone help with the results or know if the matches were played?

Raith Rovers 1-2 Barnsley
Thanks. That's the same score as when the teams met in the return match at Barnsley on Saturday 7th.

There's ageing for you. Pretty sure I was at the Ayr game but no memory of score. Did the Chesterfield-Raith match take place? There's no mention of it in John Litster's Raith history though he does have details for both Barnsley matches.

The Raith Rovers proramme for the 14th August mentions both Barnsley games but nothing about a game against Chesterfield.

The Evening Times for both the 7th and 9th August give the fixture.

A Raith Rovers programme for their game v Swansea on 7/8/82 gives a list of their games played to that date against English league opposition. No mention of Chesterfield. Scorers v Barnsley (H) was Wallace, v Barnsley (A) was Robertson

Still digging, but as of yet I've found nothing about the Raith game down here.
