Raith back to winning ways

Raith recorded their first win in five games thanks to a 3-2 victory over Hamilton.

John McGlynn's side took an early lead on nine minutes when Jason Holt fired a left-footed effort home from close range.

Hamilton came back into the game seven minutes later thanks to Douglas Imrie's emphatic left-footed finish.

The home side regained the lead in the 61st minute when John Baird set up Denis Prychynenko to convert from six yards out.

Raith extended their lead on 79 minutes when David Smith sent a thundering 25-yard strike into the back of the net before Hamilton were awarded a penalty in the 86th minute to set up a tense finish when Prychynenko upended Matthew Paterson.

James Chambers missed the subsequent spot kick, but Mark McLaughlin did manage to score in the closing seconds for Hamilton with an impressive strike from just outside the area.

Hearts trio in for Raith

Raith add on-loan Hearts trio Jason Holt, David Smith and Jamie Walker to their squad to face Hamilton as they look to end a run of four straight defeats.

However, manager John McGlynn will once again be without captain Iain Davidson because of a knee injury and back-up goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw, Reece Donaldson, Scott McBride and Ross Callaghan are all out of action.

McGlynn said: "We had a cracking match with Hamilton at their place that ended two apiece. It would be great to repeat that but with us scoring one more than them this time.

"The three boys from Hearts have given us a freshness in training, and more importantly they are proving real competition for starting places."

Hamilton midfielder Ziggy Gordon is available for the first time in over a month following injury as the New Douglas Park side look to put a disappointing performance at Livingston a fortnight ago behind them.

The Accies are without injured goalkeeper Tomas Cerny, who joins Kyle Wilkie, Lee Kilday and Alex Neil on the sidelines.

Boss Billy Reid said: "We had last weekend off and time will tell if it was a good thing. We were not good enough against Livingston and we have been working on a few things to ensure we play a lot better this time out.

"Raith's strikers were excellent against us earlier in the season so we have to keep them quiet to pick up a win."
