Toshney returns for Raith

Raith Rovers have Lewis Toshney available after a ban to face Morton but Kyle Benedictus remains suspended.

David Bates is clear of a ban but a calf injury keeps him out of the action, while Lewis Vaughan has a knee problem.

Kirkcaldy manager Ray McKinnon said: "Morton had a great 3-0 win at Hibs in midweek and whilst some people appear to be shocked by that I am not. They are a very good side going forward and are more than capable of defending well.

"Despite that we will look to build on our success over Livingston last Saturday and dig ourselves in deeper in fourth place."

The Greenock side could be eight players down as they look to build on their success at Easter Road.

Bobby Barr is banned, Conor Pepper (knee), Luca Gasporotto (ankle), Peter MacDonald (knee), Frank McKeown (knee) and Alex Samuel (knee) are missing with Michael Tidser and Michael Miller struggling.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "We did not have much time to enjoy our win as the players were back at work on Thursday.

"We had a slow start but once we came through that we deserved our win, however that counts for nothing now. We need to go again."
