Match Preview

Pars without suspended Rutkiewicz Table-topping Dunfermline are without banned defender Kevin Rutkiewicz for the biggest Fife Derby in 16 years against second-placed neighbours Raith Rovers. Midfield pair Steven Bell and Nicky Phinn remain sidelined with Andy Dowie, Callum Woods and Jake Hyde all facing fitness tests before they can be included in manager Jim McIntyre's squad. McIntyre said: "There will be a full house at East End Park with nearly 12,000 fans there and this will be a huge game for both clubs, make no mistake about that. "I reckon both sides will be going all out to win the game due to the prize that is at stake. "The league is running out of games so there is little room to get things wrong now, so we will go out and give it our best shot." Raith Rovers welcome back defender Dougie Hill from suspension. However, striker Gary Wales looks set to miss out with a hamstring injury. Kirkcaldy fans have bought all the tickets available to them with manager John McGlynn saying: "It is a game that would be fantastic to win. It is not a league decider but it will go a long way to deciding who does win the league. "The build-up has been going on for some time now. The fans have been looking forward to visiting here at this stage of the season with something important to play for. "It will be a tense affair, but hopefully we will come out on top and have taken ourselves closer to what would be a massive financial boost by being promoted."

Match Report

Hardie keeps Pars on course Martin Hardie notched a brace as Dunfermline came from behind to defeat local rivals Raith 2-1 and bolster their title hopes. The victory takes Jim McIntyre's team four points clear of their second-placed opponents in the First Division title race. Raith had the upper-hand when they went in front four minutes before the interval. Laurence Ellis headed the ball back across the area for John Baird to rifle into the top corner from close range. But the Pars launched a second-half fight back and a Hardie header - from Joe Cardle's inviting cross - levelled things up in the 55th minute. And Hardie completed the turnaround 12 minutes from time, curling home a delightful free-kick after Kevin McBride fouled Steven McDougall on the edge of the box.
