Match Preview

Defensive duo in for Staggies Ross County have added new defenders Mark Fitzpatrick and Graham Garthland to their squad for the clash with Raith. Fitzpatrick joins from Motherwell, while Garthland is on loan from St Johnstone. Midfielder Stuart Kettlewell is suspended, while Darren McCormick and Darren Smith remain sidelined. Manager Willie McStay has his fingers crossed that Paul Lawson and Michael Gardyne pass fitness tests to be included. He said: "I am delighted with the additions we have made to the squad and I`m looking forward to seeing them in action against Raith. "I saw John McGlynn's men play on Boxing Day and they are a useful side but I want us to start a busy time for games with a win." Raith look set to be without injured striker Gary Wales as they put the only unbeaten away record in the First Division on the line. They are looking to build on the fine 2-1 win over leaders Dunfermline that they opened the year with. Boss John McGlynn said: "The main objective is the three points and of course if we achieve that we keep our unbeaten run going. "It will not be easy as this will be a really, really tight game that may well be settled by one piece of magic from a striker. "We have players that can do that and so do Ross County, so it may come down to whoever gets a break of the ball."

Match Report

Raith go top after win Raith went top of the Irn-Bru First Division after they claimed a 1-0 win over a battling Ross County side. Laurence Ellis's goal on 65 minutes was enough to win it and though John McGlynn's side go above Dunfirmline in the standings, they never looked convincing against a struggling Ross County team. Ellis took his goal well as he fired in a volley from the edge of the area that flew into the top left-hand corner of the net. Marc Fitzpatrick could have stolen a point for the home side in the 88th minute but his shot hit the post from 12 yards out. It would have been the least they deserved and Staggies boss Willie McStay will be dissapointed with a defeat.
