Murray has options for Dumbarton

Dumbarton have a suspension and injury-free squad to face Raith as they look to build on Saturday's 4-3 success over Dunfermline and move further clear of Airdrie at the foot of the table.

Player-manager Ian Murray, who named himself as a substitute at East End Park for the first time since groin surgery last year, said: "We have not won at home for a while so it would be good to follow the win over Dunfermline with a success here.

"We scored some great goals at the weekend and it would be good to show our home fans that side of our game again.

"Not only does a win get us three points it also drags Raith into things, so we have plenty of reasons for wanting to win."

Raith are hoping top goalscorer Brian Graham recovers from the illness that kept him out of Saturday's 2-1 win at Airdrie by the time the game comes around.

Laurie Ellis is a major doubt with a calf injury, with player/manager Grant Murray preferring to look up the First Division table and not down.

Murray said: "Our aim is to move higher in the table and if we win at Dumbarton and Falkirk lose then we will do that.

"Our win at Airdrie was our first away success since October so it would be great to secure another one really quickly.

"We have to be on our guard as Dumbarton won well at Dunfermline and have shown that they are a side that can score goals."
