Match Preview

Duo out for Gus' debut Queen of the South have defender Craig Reid and midfielder Stephen McKenna missing for the visit of Raith Rovers for what will be manager Gus McPherson's first league game in charge. Striker Marc McCusker remains out with a groin problem. McPherson has told his side they will need to work hard to mark his debut with a win. McPherson said: "John McGlynn is a very clever coach and while he has a tighter squad this season numbers wise he will get the best out of them. "Raith are always well organised and they attack you with pace when they have the ball and work really hard to get it off you when they lose possession so will have to play well to take anything." Raith are sweating on the fitness of striker John Baird, who was forced to sit out training on Thursday after picking up a knock. Captain Iain Davidson has already been ruled out for the next two months and boss John McGlynn does not want to be without another influential player. McGlynn said: "John is very important to us and it was more of a precautionary move for him to miss training, so we are hoping he will make it. "This will be a big game for Queen's as it is Gus McPherson's first home league match but we have to look after ourselves. We achieved a good result over Falkirk last week and need to build on that."

Match Report

Raith riposte secures victory A fantastic second-half fightback from Raith gave them a 3-1 victory over Queen of the South. John Baird grabbed a brace and Brian Graham also netted to make it two league wins out of two for Rovers. Kevin Smith gave Queen of the South the lead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time after Douglas Hill was adjudged to have fouled Ryan McGuffie. The Doonhamers threw away a two-goal lead last week against Livingston and wasted their advantage again here. Baird got himself on the end of Iain Williamson's cross to level proceedings in the 67th minute before giving Raith the lead 10 minutes later with a 25-yard lob. Smith went from hero to villain for Queen of the South as he was dismissed for violent conduct after 86 minutes. One minute later, Graham completed Rovers' comeback, with his own lob from just inside the penalty box.
