Match Preview

Duo missing for Raith League leaders Raith Rovers will be missing the injured duo of Iain Williamson and Scott McBride for the visit of Partick Thistle, however manager John McGlynn can include Iain Davidson after suspension. Versatile defender Laurie Ellis is struggling with a calf injury, but may play providing he has no negative reaction in training. McGlynn believes that teams are going to start upping their game against his side, saying: "We are the top of the table team and that means that we are a target for everyone. It is up to us to handle that and keep our challenge going." "This will be a really difficult game as Ian McCall is a very experienced manager and Partick had a very good result in midweek." Partick Thistle travel to Kirkcaldy with Willie Kinniburgh, Bryan Hodge, Paul Cairney, Ross McGeough and Simon Donnelly all ruled out with Alan Archibald and Paul Paton facing fitness battles ahead of kick off. "We are down to the bare bones of a squad," said assistant manager Ian Maxwell. He added: "We will go to Stark's Park in good spirits following our win over Queen of the South in midweek. "Raith defeated us 4-0 at the start of the season, but when we played them on Boxing Day there was very little between the sides. "It will be a hard game but there is no pressure on us as we are the underdogs so we will go out and enjoy it."

Match Report

Raith undone by Partick Table-topping Raith Rovers succumed to an unexpected 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Partick Thistle. The first half was a turgid affair, with both sides unable to break the deadlock. However, Raith's defensive gameplan was undone only minutes into the second half. Partick top scorer Kris Doolan scored his thirteenth goal of the season when he turned a Paul Paton cross past the helpless Raith goalkeeper Andrew McNeil. Even a triple substitution by Raith manager John McGlynn was not enough to break down the well-organised Partick defence. Douglas Hill and Stephen Simmons both had chances to equalise for Rovers, but the game was settled in stoppage time with a solo effort from ex-Everton academy left-back Patrick Boyle. The result cuts Raith's lead to only two points, but Partick remain in fourth position, sixteen points off a promotion spot.
