Match Preview

Raith wait on Davidson Raith manager John McGlynn will hand a late fitness test to midfielder Iain Davidson ahead of the home clash with Falkirk. McGlynn will leave his decision until the last minute as the combative midfielder is struggling with a knee injury, while striker Gary Wales is definitely out. McGlynn said: "Iain missed training earlier in the week and although he did some work on Thursday, I want to ensure there's been no reaction before we put him into this game. "Falkirk are coming here hurt by their recent run of results, but we have our own ambitions to work towards so have to be as determined as they are. "The last time we met it was goalless and I'd expect this to be a very tight affair as well." Falkirk have brought Portuguese midfielder Pedro Moutinho to the club for a third time and he goes straight into the squad for the clash. Striker Carl Finnigan misses out through suspension and striker Tam McManus is still not ready for action after knee surgery. Manager Steven Pressley said: "Pedro has been in training with us for a couple of weeks now and I'm delighted that he's signed. "This is a big game and a win could prove to be pivotal in our season. Winning at Stark's Park could set us off on a run of positive results."

Match Report

Bairns hit back to stun Rovers Ten-man Falkirk produced a remarkable first-half turnaround to stun league leaders Raith 2-1 and close the gap between the two sides to seven points. The home side made the perfect start against the team third in the league, as Laurence Ellis headed Iain Davidson's cross past Robert Olejnik in the 10th minute. But that was as good as things got for Rovers as Falkirk equalised after 38 minutes through a thunderous Jack Compton strike which sailed into the top corner from 30 yards. The visitors completed their comeback four minutes later when Mark Stewart drilled a low right footed shot past David McGurn. Things were made much more difficult for Steven Pressley's side after Brian McLean was dismissed for a second bookable offence but they held on for a vital three points.
