Raith Rovers 2 v 0 Dunfermline Athletic

Last updated: Saturday, 08 May, 2021, 16:24

Great save from MacDonald to deny Craig Wighton who had a clear run on goal.

The Pars have had the upper hand in the last few minutes.

Armstrong heads over from a Kieran MacDonald cross.

Benedictus slices a cross into the box narrowly over the Raith bar. A let off!

A Kieran MacDonald shot is saved by Fon Williams but he didn’t look to confident as he pushed it away.

Five minutes until the break. Still 0-0.

It’s 0-0 with Dunfermline maybe the slightly better side in the first half. In a game of few chances they certainly passed up the best one through Wighton. Both teams are keeping it incredibly tight, understandable in the game with so much riding on it.

A huge 45 minutes ahead!!

A Dunfermline header from Murray goes narrowly wide.

A shot from Thomas goes over the Raith bar. It’s been quite a frantic start to the second half with the visitors in command.

It’s still 0-0.

Much more open in this half. Both sides are going for it.

Raith’s Davidson is booked for late challenge.

A huge goal! Lewis Vaughan after 63 minutes pouncing on the ball after Fon Williams had parried a ferocious shot from Reghan Tumilty. 1-0 Rovers!!

Brad Spencer booked for a late challenge.
