Match Preview

Double blow for Rovers Leaders Raith look set to be without Laurie Ellis and Iain Williamson for their clash with Ross County. The duo are injured for the encounter, providing a major blow for manager John McGlynn who knows his side need to win to ensure they remain at the summit. McGlynn said: "There are tricky games all over the country just now and if we are going to stay up there this is a game that we have to win. "The spirit and workrate of the players has taken us to the top and I sure it will continue as we face a lot of hard games starting with a Ross County side that will be desperate to bounce back after losing at the weekend." Ross County make the trip with a virtually clean bill of health. Long-term absentee Darren McCormack remains sidelined and Stuart Kettlewell is suspended, but, otherwise, manager Jimmy Calderwood has no worries. Calderwood is still smarting from Saturday's 2-1 reverse that left County, who have secured only one win in 14 games, in the relegation play-off place. He said: "I am looking for a much sharper performance against Raith as I was really disappointed with what I saw against Queen of the South. "We need to be stronger on the ball and win more 50/ 50 challenges and generally just be up for it more than we were in that game. "We had been making progress but slipped back on Saturday."

Match Report

Rovers stay top despite being held Raith maintained their two-point gap at the top of the Scottish First Division after securing a 1-1 draw at home to Ross County. In an uninspiring first half, County came close to taking the lead after 13 minutes when Steven Milne crashed a 12-yard header against the bar from Richard Brittain's free-kick. The dominant away side did eventually make one of their chances count four minutes after half-time, Jonathan Flynn slotting home from inside the box from Brittain's corner. Their lead lasted only six minutes, though, as Raith - with their first real opportunity - equalised, Gregory Tade meeting Craig Wilson's cross to convert from inside the area. Rovers almost won it when Allan Walker's 64th-minute effort hit the post.
