Rovers duo still sidelined

Raith will still be without David McGurn and Calum Elliot when they host Morton.

Goalkeeper McGurn has an Achilles problem and striker Elliot remains sidelined by a hamstring injury.

Recent recruit John Baird is available after he was cup-tied for the game with St Johnstone last weekend but Ross Callaghan is struggling after picking up a knock.

Manager Grant Murray said: "We played well against a strong Premiership side in St Johnstone last weekend, however we lost goals at bad times.

"Both ourselves and Morton will be out to win this game and start putting a run together for a really positive end to the season."

Morton midfielder Fouad Bachirou drops out due to suspension but captain Dougie Imrie returns from a ban.

Goalkeeper Nicolas Caraux and David Robertson are closing in on a return after injury but Ben Sampayo (knee) and Reece Hands (groin) are out.

The bottom of the table side need a win to keep their thin hopes of avoiding the drop alive with manager Kenny Shiels saying: "There are good players at Raith Rovers who will be disappointed at not having won in a while and we need to try and take advantage of that.

"We simply have to start winning and winning often."
