Booth back from ban for Rovers

Raith will look to end a run of two successive defeats by seeing off Queen of the South at Stark's Park and they have Calum Booth available after suspension to help them in their quest.

Goalkeeper David McGurn is the only absentee with an ankle injury as manager Grant Murray looks for his men to show a strong side to their character.

"After going for a good period without losing a game we have lost two in a row," said Murray. "We have to show that we can recover from that quickly.

"We under-performed at Alloa last weekend so I am expecting a much better performance in this game."

Queen of the South manager Jim McIntyre has a pleasant selection dilemma ahead of his side's trip to Kirkcaldy.

The Doonhamer's boss can call on the team that defeated Morton 2-0 and he also has Stephen McKenna and Paul Burns knocking on his door for starting roles after proving their fitness in a midweek reserve game.

McIntyre said: "It is great to have two very experienced players ready to be involved from the start again so I have some tough choices to make.

"I have to get the team right as Raith proved when they won at our place earlier in the season that they are a very resilient side."
