Match Preview

Campbell fit for Rovers Raith Rovers boss John McGlynn has included fit-again defender Mark Campbell in his squad for the visit of Stirling Albion. But Campbell is unlikely to start as he remains short of match practice after being sent off early in a reserve game in midweek. New signing Christian Nanetti has been registered in time, although he too is short of recent games and may miss out alongside the injured Dougie Hill and Scott McBride, while striker Jamie Mole is doubtful. McGlynn said: "Some people will be reckoning that we should win after the start we have had and the fact that Stirling Albion are new in this division, but football does not work that way." Stirling Albion are hoping international clearance comes through in time for former Ajax youth striker Sylvano Comvalius to be included.. But midfielder Andy Gibson has been ruled out with ankle ligament damage. Manager John O'Neill is anticipating a tough afternoon ahead for his side at Stark's Park. He said: "It will be a tough task to win the game as Raith don't concede too many goals. "We have improved recently, but are not taking our chances often enough. If we create against Rovers and get in front, well you never know we may just leave with a win." O'Neill added: "Sylvano will add a great deal to our forward line and it would be great if we had him for Raith Rovers."

Match Report

Raith miss a chance Raith failed to move to the top of the table as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Stirling. The away side took the lead in first-half injury time through a Christopher Aitken penalty, after he was brought down in the box by Stephen Simmons. Rovers were unlucky not to be on level terms on 55 minutes when Willie Dyer's fantastic 35-yard drive came rattling back off the crossbar. The follow-up header from Allan Walker was brilliantly tipped over the bar by Stirling goalkeeper Callum Reidford. But as the home side pushed forward looking for the equaliser, Aitken despatched a throughball which was slotted home by Gordon Smith on 90 minutes, giving Stirling a much-needed victory.
