Late Ryan Hardie goal earns Raith all three points against Morton

Declan McManus' second-half brace was not enough as Raith struck back late on to edge a 3-2 victory over Morton in their Championship clash at Stark's Park.

McManus fired wide for the visitors in a lively start before Rovers defender Rory McKeown put his side ahead after seven minutes, slotting home from just outside the box with his first goal for the club.

Morton looked to pull one back and finally got their reward through McManus' close-range equaliser deep into the second half, but the hosts hit back moments later as Aidan Connolly fired home to restore his side's narrow lead.

McManus found the net a second time as he slotted into the bottom corner with three minutes remaining only for Raith substitute Ryan Hardie to hit back to hand his side all three points at the death for their second consecutive win.
