Raith Rovers 0 - 1 Queen of South

Saturday 30th April 2011
C McMenamin (90+3)

Late McMenamin strike stuns Raith

Raith's promotion hopes ended as Colin McMenamin's stoppage-time strike gave Queen of the South a 1-0 win at Stark's Park.

McMenamin scored his 10th league goal of the season three minutes into added time, meeting Stephen Black's cross to convert from close range.

In a disappointing opening half Rovers' best effort came after 19 minutes, John Baird's effort from inside the box hitting the crossbar.

McMenamin then fired over from 18 yards four minutes before half-time.

Baird and Craig Wilson both fired wide from the edge of the area in the second period for the home side, while Robert Harris' 25-yard free-kick wide was the best Queen of the South could muster after the break until McMenamin snatched all three points.

Dunfermline`s victory at Morton ensured they are crowned champions with one game remaining.

Rovers missing banned Walker

Second-placed Raith Rovers are missing midfielder Allan Walker through suspension for the visit of Queen of the South.

Walker misses out following his post-match red card at leaders Dunfermline last weekend.

Striker Gary Wales remains out with a hamstring problem and manager John McGlynn will give fitness tests to defender Willie Dyer and winger Scott McBride.

McGlynn said: "We have to win to have any hope of catching Dunfermline. We have to pick up three points and not hand the Championship on a plate to our neighbours.

"Everyone was quiet following our defeat at East End Park, however we will be ready to go for the three points against Queen of the South."

Queen of the South welcome back Craig Reid from suspension but winger Willie McLaren starts a two-game ban.

Rocco Quinn will be included in manager Kenny Brannigan's starting line-up if he has suffered no reaction to his first start in over two months when he played against Ross County in midweek following a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Daniel Orsi and striker David Weatherston have already been ruled out and Brannigan's options could be reduced further with Paul Burns and Ryan McGuffie expected to be unavailable through knocks.

The Dumfries boss said: "We went to Stark's Park earlier in the season and won 1-0 and we would gladly settle for that result again especially with a patched up side."
