Match Preview

Late checks for Raith duo Raith will give late checks to Mark Campbell and Willie Dyer as they look to end Dundee's 15-game unbeaten run in the First Division that includes a recent 2-1 win over the Kirkcaldy men. Stark's Park boss John McGlynn said: "If we want to stay at the top of the table then we have to ensure that we start using home advantage more to our benefit. "We haven`t won at Stark's for a wee while now. "Revenge is not a word I use and all I would say is that it would be great to end Dundee's fine run by taking three points from this game. They have done fantastically well recently but then again so have we." Dundee manager Barry Smith is likely to include himself in the squad as a trialist with full-back Gary Irvine suspended. Veteran winger Neil McCann can be included for a third and final time as a trialist, with manager Smith still only looking down and not up despite the club pulling away from relegation danger on a run of 16 games unbeaten. Smith said: "Our season continues to be about fighting to avoid relegation. "This game gives us the chance to pick up another three points and nothing more. We beat Raith at our place recently but that will count for nothing in this game."

Match Report

Higgins stars in Dundee win Sean Higgins' netted a brace as Dundee secured a surprise 2-1 win over league-leaders Raith. Raith could have broken the deadlock in the 11th minute, but Allan Walker couldn't direct his 20-yard shot on target. Higgins, who was a constant threat throughout, almost opened the scoring a minute later but his 12-yard shot was comfortably saved by Andrew McNeil in the Raith goal. Higgins did go one better and opened the scoring in the 34th minute, though, beating McNeil from 12 yards with a smart left-footed strike. Raith equalised five minutes after half-time, Allan Walker firing home from 20 yards. But the visitors went ahead four minutes later when Higgins claimed his second of the game, converting a Craig Forsyth cross to secure a vital three points for Dundee.
