Five minutes to kick off

We have an early kick off tonight at 7pm. Even earlier was Dunfermline v Dundee which kicked off at 6pm. It’s 0-0 at HT in that one.

...and we’re underway.

Nothing between the teams so far. No early action to report.

Rovers guilty of being slightly sloppy in possession at times. Giving the ball away too often at the moment. Still 0-0.

Queens have looked dangerous going forward on a couple of occasions but the Rovers defence coping well. Regan Hendry had a shot from distance a minute ago but it was straight at Ferguson in the QoS goal.

Armstrong backheels to Tumilty and his low cross is tapped in a the near post by Ugwu. 1-0 to Raith after 17 minutes.

Chance for Queens. Slack defending from Raith found Mebude alone in the box but his effort from a Willie Gibson cross was poor and went high over Jamie MacDonald’s bar. A warning for Rovers.

Armstrong plays a neat one-two with Ugwu but his shot is too high. Rovers looking good here.

Good spell of possession for Queens in the last minute but t came to nothing. Still1-0 to the visitors.

Not a lot of goalmouth action overall but Raith won’t mind if the scoreline stays the same.
