Raith hope to sign former Hibs player Kevin McCann before kick off against bottom of the table Morton at Stark’s Park.

McCann has been a free agent club since leaving Livingston at the end of last season and he will face one of his former clubs when the Greenock side pitch up.

Manager Grant Murray said: “Kevin has good experience and he will be a very sound addition to our squad. Morton’s heavy defeat from Cowdenbeath has made this game very hard for us as they will be coming out all guns blazing looking to make up for it.”

Joe Cardle is expected to return after shaking off a knock he picked up against leaders Hamilton Accies last weekend however Dougie Hill is banned following his sending off following his sending off at New Douglas Park. Paul Watson is fit again and included in the Raith squad.

The players at bottom of the table Morton were made to watch a video nasty this week when manager Allan Moore showed them footage of last Saturday’s 5-1 defeat from Cowdenbeath.

Moore is hoping that his tactic brings an improved performance against Raith as he explained: “The players were told to sit down and just watch the game. There was no ranting and raving they were just told to watch and see the mistakes they made.”

“It was a difficult session for some players but hopefully they now realise where they went wrong. Hopefully we can move on quickly with a good performance against Raith. We have done well against Celtic and Hamilton recently it is time to hit those standards again.

Moore is hoping that skipper Mark McLaughlin will return to bolster his defence however Thomas O’Ware, Reece Hands and Thomas O’Brien are again ruled out with Scott Taggart, Kabba-Modou Cham and Tony Wallace all struggling to make it.
