Match Preview

Douglas returns after red is rescinded Dundee will include goalkeeper Rab Douglas in their squad to face visitors Raith. Douglas was due to be suspended for this game but the SFA overturned the red card the former Scotland international received in last Saturday's game against Partick. Graham Bayne remains unavailable due to injury, however fellow attacker Jake Hyde is included after more than two months out with a knee problem. Dark Blues manager Barry Smith is desperate for the club to secure a win which could lift see his men move off the basement. "We are overdue our first win at home and getting that is more important than league positions at the moment," he said. "We aim to get that win and then see where we are in the league." Raith are again without captain Iain Davidson (groin) as they look to earn their first league win at Dens Park since April 1995. A knee injury keeps winger Scott McBride out as the Kirkcaldy men look for only their second success in 10 games this season, and for the three points that would push them further away from their hosts at the foot of the table. Manager John McGlynn said: "We will be playing in front of a big crowd at a decent stadium so we are looking forward to it. "They left our place with a win earlier in the season when we were the better side so hopefully we can put that right this time."

Match Report

Conroy the hero for Dark Blues Dundee recorded a 1-0 win over Raith thanks to a late goal from Ryan Conroy. Raith had the first sight of goal after 22 minutes but John Baird's long-range effort was easily saved by Rab Douglas. Leighton Mcintosh tried his luck from distance after the restart, but the Dundee striker's shot sailed harmlessly wide. Dundee came close to breaking the deadlock after 73 minutes, but Nicholas Riley's strike was well saved by David McGurn. McGurn kept Raith level two minutes later with a wonderful save, tipping Stephen O'Donnell's powerful drive around the post. But Dundee were not be denied, and Riley's left-wing cross was met by Conroy, who planted his header into the bottom corner.
