Welcome to Stark’s Park for this afternoon’s Championship match between Raith Rovers and Arbroath.

Two changes for Raith today. The injured Jamie Gullan is out as is the suspended Iain Davidson. Coming in are Kieran MacDonald and Dan Armstrong.

Targets for both sides

Rovers will be looking to make another step towards securing a play off place, whilst Dick Campbell’s men will want to avoid finishing in the second bottom spot in the Championship and face a relegation pay-off.

Changes up front for Raith

It looks like Lewis Vaughan will be playing as the main striker with support from Kai Kennedy, with John McGlynn leaving his big strikers, Duku, Abraham and Ugwu on the bench.

One win apiece so far...

Raith kicked off the season with an encouraging 3-0 home win against Arbroath but the Lichties got their revenge in February, winning 1-0 at Gayfield through a Kris Doolan goal.

The teams are out...

We’re close to kick off.

Referee Gavin Duncan blows his whistle...

...and we’re underway.

Arbroath go close after just 90 seconds. A Ben Williamson shot from the edge of the box is deflected just wide. Let off for Rovers.

Rovers respond straight away. A low cross from Regan Tumilty is narrowly missed at the front post by Dylan Tait.

There’s been no further goalmouth action since the frenetic opening couple of minutes. Still 0-0.

Hamilton booked for a swipe at Raith’s Tumilty.

Raith on top but struggling to create any chances. Arbroath are defending well.
