Match Preview

Tam misses Raith clash Falkirk are without injured striker Tam McManus for their clash with Raith Rovers. But winger Jack Compton is added to the squad that demolished Stirling Albion 5-1 back on November 13. Bairns boss Steven Pressley said: "We have worked hard on keeping the players' fitness levels up during this cold period and now it is time to get back to winning games." Rovers won the opening contest of the season between the sides 2-1 at Stark's Park, and Pressley is keen to make amends. He added: "We were ahead in that game and lost out, however there were signs against Stirling that things were really beginning to fall into place for us. If we get back to that level of performance in this game I will be pleased." Raith hope to welcome back full-back Craig Wilson after he missed the Boxing Day clash with Partick Thistle through illness. However, Dougie Hill, Stephen Simmonds and on-loan Hearts striker Jamie Mole are all expected to sit out through injury. Kirkcaldy manager John McGlynn is looking for his side to keep their unbeaten away run in the league going. He said: "Falkirk away is one the biggest games of the season and one I am really looking forward too. "A win would get us back into at least second place and that would be a great place to start in the new year."

Match Report

Raith held to stalemate Raith failed in their efforts to increase the pressure on First Division leaders Dunfermline as they could only manage a goalless draw at Falkirk. Rovers were just two points off top-spot heading into the clash, but, after the Pars` thumping 5-0 win over Cowdenbeath, they are now further adrift. After a cagey opening period, the visitors fashioned the first opening but Scott McBride`s excellent 30-yard effort went inches wide. That spurred the promotion-chasers on, with McBride proving particularly threatening as he saw another effort from distance creep over. Falkirk came out fighting after the interval, though, and could have taken the lead themselves when Mark Millar`s goal-bound strike was blocked by Mark Campbell. The game again entered a lull thereafter, with both sides battling for the initiative without creating clear-cut chances. Gregory Tade briefly threatened to win it for Raith late on after finding space in the box, but saw his effort saved.
