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.
Raith kick off
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.
