Laidlaw in for injured McGurn

Raith will be without number one goalkeeper David McGurn against former manager John McGlynn's Livingston.

McGurn sustained an Achilles injury against Morton on Saturday so Ross Laidlaw will start in goal, while defender Dougie Hill is back from suspension as Kirkcaldy manager Grant Murray looks to put pressure on leaders Hamilton.

Murray said: "A win would pull us to within two points of the top, which is a good place to be at this stage of the season.

"We will need to play well to win as Livingston are doing well under John's guidance, which is no surprise to anyone at Raith Rovers."

Livingston will give a late check to midfielder Kyle Wilkie before boss McGlynn finalises his side.

Mike Mampuya (knee) and Ross Docherty (groin) remain sidelined as the Lions boss wants his side to build on Saturday's 2-1 win over Dundee.

McGlynn said: "We had to put in a really strong performance to come from behind and beat Dundee.

"We will need a similar performance to see off a Raith Rovers side that are having a very good season.

"It will be nice to go back after leaving last year for Hearts, but I'm determined to enjoy being at Stark's Park with a win."
