Match Preview

Rovers at full strength Eighth-placed Raith Rovers have a fully-fit and suspension-free squad for the visit of a Morton side that sit immediately above them in the table. John McGlynn's side go into the game boosted by their 2-1 win over Partick Thistle last week that moved them up in the table. McGlynn said: "It was great to get that success as it had been a wee while since we had won. "The players had a spring in their step in training this week and confidence levels have risen but we need to be wary. "Morton manager Allan Moore will have his side out to make up for losing to Hamilton last week. Three points and a first win of the season over our visitors would be great." Morton are boosted by the return of fit-again Andy Graham and Derek Young as they look to repeat January's Scottish Cup win at Raith. It is not all good news for the Greenock side, though, as central defenders Marc Smyth and Stuart McCaffrey remain out injured. The Cappielow players have been told that they must compete for the 90 minutes to succeed as manager by Allan Moore. He said: "Last weekend against Hamilton we did not play in the first half and found ourselves two goals down. "We were better in the second but it was too late. This league is too tight to switch off for a half. "We did well at Kirkcaldy in the Cup and a repeat of that win would be very welcome."

Match Report

Five-star Raith romp past Morton Relegation-threatened Raith boosted their chances of survival with an emphatic 5-0 victory over fellow strugglers Morton. Brian Graham put the home side in front in the in the 35th minute with a neat finish from inside the box. And the forward was on target again one minute after the restart with another close-range strike. John Baird extended their lead the 59th minute when he shot from 12 yards out and the ball nestled into the bottom-right corner of the net. Allan Walker added gloss to the score in the 85th minute when he slotted home from six yards out, and substitute Iain Williamson made it five in the final minute of normal time with a powerful effort from inside the box that nestled into the bottom-left corner.
