Declan McManus at double as Raith beat St Mirren
Declan McManus was a two-goal hero for Raith as they cruised past St Mirren 3-1 at Stark's Park.
Rovers went in front after 17 minutes when Lewis Vaughan fed the striker, who expertly lobbed Jamie Langfield.
Two goals in two second-half minutes sunk the Saints' challenge. Vaughan broke from a corner to tee up Ross Callachan for number two.
McManus soon added another when he intercepted a through-ball ahead of Langfield. He left the goalkeeper stranded and passed the ball into an open goal.
Ryan Hardie pulled one back for Alex Rae's men when a long Lawrence Shankland throw caused havoc, but it was too little, too late.
