It’s a biggie! Welcome to the Premiership quarter-final play-off between Dunfermline and Raith Rovers.

Here’s how the teams look tonight...

Two changes to the Rovers side which lost to Hearts on Friday night. Ross Matthews returns from injury to start along with Kai Kennedy. Fernandy Mendy and Adam King both drop to the bench.

It’s an early kick off tonight at 7pm.

Acknowledgement...

Nice of the BBC to finally add the match to their fixture list. Just sayin...

...will take place on Saturday at Stark’s Park. KO 3pm.

As at Dundee a couple of weeks ago, the players are bathed in sunshine whilst a freezing cold wind whips through the virtually empty stand!

We’re close to kick off.

Rovers kick off...

...and we’re underway!

Rovers have started well and have the bulk of possession so far.

Dunfermline are two on one after a mistake from Reghan Tumilty but they don’t take advantage and Raith clear. From the resultant corner Steven Whittaker fires just over from distance.

No goals as yet but the match is being played at a good pace. Rovers still seeing plenty of the ball.

Great save from Jame MacDonald to deny Kevin O’Hara after he was played through.

Still no scoring. The match is evenly balanced but the Pars have had the better chances so far.
