Raith Rovers 2 v 0 Dunfermline Athletic

Last updated: Saturday, 08 May, 2021, 15:38

Welcome to a soaking wet Stark’s Park for this crucial Fife derby between Raith and Dunfermline.

And now it’s over to the weather...

It’s HORRIBLE. Pouring rain, windy and freezing. Hopefully it won’t have too much of an effect on the match.

The first leg finished 0-0 at East End Park on Tuesday so the first goal today will be huge. We will go to extra time and penalties if required. The winner will go through to play Dundee in another double-header, with the first leg on Wednesday night.

Today’s Raith Rovers team

Just one change to the Raith side from Tuesday’s draw. Kai Kennedy drops out to be replaced by Dan Armstrong.

The Dunfermline line-up

And the Pars’ subs

It’s Fernandy Mendy on the bench for Rovers, not Manny Duku as listed. Kai Kennedy misses out altogether due to an injury.

The teams emerge...

Kick off is imminent.
