Last updated: Tuesday, 04 May, 2021, 20:16

Craig Wighton has a low shot from inside the box but it’s well wide.

Dunfermline have stepped up a gear and have the better of the last five minutes and are putting pressure on the Rovers rearguard.

Booking for the Pars’ Whittaker.

Slackness at the back from Rovers almost costs the but Declan McManus fluffs his shot after being set up by Wighton. MacDonald saves well from a curling shot from Ewan Henderson. It’s all Dunfermline at the moment.

Half an hour gone.

It’s still 0-0 and Rovers yet to have a shot on goal.

A superb forward run from Kieran MacDonald, he plays it to Kai Kennedy and his cross is inches too high for Lewis Vaughan. Close!!

Five minutes to HT, still no scoring.

It’s 0-0 at the break, with Wighton blazing a shot high and wide just before referee Steven Kirkland’s whistle. Raith had the better of the first 25 minutes but will be disappointed not to have had at least one attempt on goal. In turn, the home side will probably feel they should have scored at least one of their chances.

It’s all to play for in the second half!

No changes at half time

The second half has begun.

Kieran MacDonald has a shot but slips as he strike the ball and it goes well over. Encouraging though.

Still waiting on that opening goal...

Low shot from Pars’ Dominic Thomas is saved by MacDonald.

Low shot from Pars’ Dominic Thomas is saved by MacDonald.

A mistake from Davidson lets McManus in but MacDonald is able to save.

An hour gone. Rovers looking a bit more direct and are getting in behind in this half which they weren’t able to in the first half.
