Grant Anderson suspended for Raith's clash with Alloa

Raith Rovers will miss Grant Anderson through suspension when they look to consolidate their place in the top four by defeating visitors Alloa.

Raith are without Jon Daly, who played his final game for the club on Saturday before taking up a coaching role with Hearts.

Mark Stewart is a doubt due to illness and Ross Callachan is struggling with a shoulder injury, while manager Ray McKinnon is already without the injured Lewis Toshney (hamstring), Craig Barr (groin), Jason Thomson (back) and Lewis Vaughan (knee).

McKinnon said: "We played well against Hibs on Saturday and were unfortunate to lose. We may be short of numbers but we need to bounce back quickly against Alloa."

Basement club Alloa have lost Michael Doyle from their pool after his short-term contract expired, with the defender looking to secure a move to full-time football.

Manager Jack Ross has delayed naming his side as Jason Marr, Graeme Holmes, Michael Chopra and Scott Hynd are all struggling with knocks.

Ross said: "It has been a frustrating wait for a game after losing 1-0 to Falkirk on January 2. We did not do a lot wrong and all I will ask the players to do is to play at the same level at Raith.

"If they do that we have a chance of picking up some points."
