Match Preview

Triple boost for Rovers Raith Rovers have received a triple boost after injury doubts Laurie Ellis, Willie Dyer and John Baird were passed fit for the home match against Ayr United. The Kirkcaldy side do, however, continue to be without back-up goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw, winger Scott McBride and captain Iain Davidson. Manager John McGlynn is targeting three points to help push his men away from the Honest Men at the foot of the table. McGlynn said: "I want us to start pulling into the top half of the table with a run of good results and a win over Ayr would open up a gap and give us a platform to build on. "Their cup form is a warning to us on how well we need to play to win." Ayr will be without defender Martyn Campbell when they travel to face Raith Rovers. Campbell continues his rehabilitation from knee surgery and, subsequently, will not play as Rovers look for a victory that would lift them above their hosts. Manager Brian Reid, though, has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from as he aims to mastermind a crucial victory. He said: "When you are close to bottom you will take three points from any game and not just one from a side close to you in the table. "We have to lift our cup form into league games to get more points on board and, while it will be very tricky against Raith, we know we have the potential to win games like this."

Match Report

Raith rue Graham error An own goal from Brian Graham condemned Raith to their fourth consecutive defeat and saw Ayr move above their counterparts in Division One courtesy of the 1-0 win. The visitors went ahead when Michael McGowan whipped in a dangerous free-kick in the 10th minute, which Graham diverted into his own net under pressure from defender Eddie Malone. McGowan almost got a second after 28 minutes, but his shot across goal was well saved by David McGurn. McGurn was again called upon midway through the second half to brilliantly keep out Alan Trouten's shot from the edge of the area as the Honest Men sought to double their lead. The home side's best chance fell to Laurence Ellis, whose header from Allan Walker's corner was straight at Kevin Cuthbert.
