Match Preview

South missing three Queen of the South are without the banned Stephen McKenna and the injured midfield pair of Paul Burns and Rocco Quinn for the home clash with leaders Raith. Manager Kenny Brannigan's squad remains threadbare but the Dumfries manager is staying upbeat. He said: "We have 10 experienced outfield players for this game and that is a bit of a luxury compared to what we have had recently. All 10 boys are good players but one thing we have to do is defend better." Brannigan added, "We need to score three times to win a game and that is too many. You would normally think two would win you a game and occasionally 1 but at the moment we are letting in too many goals." Leaders Raith Rovers are without midfielder Iain Davidson through suspension. Winger Scott McBride is also ruled out with a hamstring problem but boss John McGlynn is keeping his fingers crossed that Iain Williamson overcomes a foot problem as the Fifers look to win at Palmerston for the second time this season. McGlynn said: "This will be a tough game as they will see this as a great chance to close the gap on ourselves. "I know that their manager Kenny Brannigan is having to operate with a really small squad but he has a core group of very good players." "What he gets from his team every week shows you that they are very motivated and dangerous opponents."

Match Report

Rovers extend lead after win Raith extended their lead at the top of the First Division to six points with a comfortable 2-0 win over Queen of the South at Palmerston Park. John Baird nodded Willie Dyer's left-wing cross past home goalkeeper David Hutton to give his side a 24th-minute lead and Mark Campbell should have doubled the advantage in the 48th minute, but the defender somehow fired wide from six yards. However, Campbell soon made amends for his earlier miss when he put the game beyond Queen of the South with a strong header from Allan Walker's right-wing cross in the 59th minute.
