Raith look for a first win in 11 league games and they have John Baird available to face bottom of the table Morton after he was cup-tied last weekend and missed out on the 3-1 defeat from St Johnstone.

Goalkeeper David McGurn and striker Calum Elliot remain out with injuries with manager Grant Murray saying: “Both ourselves and Morton will be out to win this game and get three points on the board for the first time in a while. I was pleased with how we played against St Johnstone last week and if we take that same level of performance into this game then I am sure we will do okay.”

“However one thing we have to better is to make sure that we do not concede goals at bad times as we lost them at the start of both halves last week and that left us chasing the game. I would much rather be in control of things.” 

Morton, who sit 13 points adrift in the race to even avoid a relegation play-off place, welcome back Dougie Imrie from suspension however Fouad Bachirou drops out due to a ban. Goalkeeper Nicolas Caraux and David Robertson are set to return after knocks however Ben Sampayo and Reece Hands are both out injured.

Manager Kenny Shiels said: “We are still in there fighting and the players are working really hard trying to turn good performances into wins. We do know that we simply have to start winning and winning often to survive.”.”         

“Raith Rovers have a very strong squad who will be disappointed at not having won in a while so we will be trying to take advantage of that. One win could spark us off on a good run.”
